Lexapro weight loss pills

Common Questions and Answers about Lexapro weight loss pills


Avatar n tn I gained on Lexapro too. Came off the product, but should be taking something. I find if I keep my blood sugar balanced I feel better. I am trying to find something that works for weight loss too. I believe I may try the HCG shots with the B-12. I tried once before the holidays for 4 weeks and did shed 8 lbs. I felt a bit constipated at first. But, I am sure if I get the water down it will eliminate that issue. Good luck.
Avatar m tn My big question is when are the doctors going to stop telling everyone that they do not gain weight on antidepressants, I have been on lexapro now for 2 yrs, and have gained 25 lbs, I watch what I eat exercise, dance, etc... and the weight will NOT come off. My doctor tells me well you are are at the age of premenopause and at that age, that you are going to gain weight, well I am getting tired of hearing it.
Avatar n tn Hi. I am about to start Lexapro and wondered how you are doing. Have you lost? Gained weight? I too don't want to gain weight, that would just add to my anxiety. Thanks for any info.

1462044 tn?1448394736 So as of today I'm trying some new weight loss pills. I know they're not ideal, but I need that quick boost to keep me motivated. Along with this, I'm also going to be going for a walk every morning before I get ready to go to work. I'm hoping this will help boost my body into burning more calories throughout the day (though I could be wrong). Also, I'm trying a very clean diet for the next week.

Avatar f tn The side effects were the ones you mentioned- weight gai and loss of interest sexually. Also I have chronic sinusitis and she mentioned to me that in some cases people's antidepressants actually exasperated their sinus issues-thus the switch. In the past 3 months I have also changed my diet to much healthier whole, real foods in an effort to get healthier and lose weight. I've lost 17 pounds so far and I had hoped the switch to wellbutin might possibly help with my weight loss too.
Avatar n tn I don't know if you've already had an answer elsewhere, but I thought I'd put in my 2 cents. I've been on Lexapro for several years and began the B12/phen diet about 4 weeks ago. Received my 3rd shot tonight of B12 and HCG. I'm losing weight so far. Weighed in this evening at an official 13lb weight loss but normally I weigh myself at home in the morning and tomorrow I expect I'll be closer to 15lb so that's the number I'll be bragging about.
Avatar f tn I am on wellbutrin and lexapro. Recently I went to a weight loss clinic where they gave me phentermine, hydrochlorthiazide, and a fiber plus calcium tablet. I was wondering how dangerous this is and if I should/could ween myself or abruptly stop my antidepressant and anxiety meds?

Avatar f tn People taking SSRIs like Lexapro can complain about weight gain; and there are many that complain about weight loss. Remember, that anxiety can often lead to depression which in itself can cause weight gain for a viarity of reasons. I actually lost weight while taking an SSRI, but I think it had to do a lot more with a normal exercise routine and watching what I ate.
Avatar f tn Wellbutrin is more stimulating than Lexapro, so it causes less weight gain and less loss of libido. Doesn't mean it's a weight loss aid, just means it doesn't promote weight gain the way ssris do with some people because it doesn't slow the metabolism. The weight loss should come over time if you stay off the ssris, assuming the wellbutrin is working for you as an antidepressant.
Avatar n tn I also have been on the generic brand of lexapro and wellbutrin for years an I too have put on a lot of weight.
Avatar f tn Hi everyone, Can someone please tell me where I can find a clinic in Chicago that prescribes phentermine weight loss pills? The only clinic that I know is Dr. Olivera on the north side of the city.
Avatar f tn On period, gained a pound today. Walked almost an hour, but felt crampy and shaky during. Taking vitamins and pills have a lot of timing to keep from interacting. Vits in morn, phentermine mid-morn, levothroxine afternoon, cal&vit d at night. So far lost 8lbs on pills, 1100-1200 cal diet, & exercise.
Avatar f tn i have atarted to take Phentermine 37.5 mg.,Lipovite Shot, and potassium pills to help me loose weight. Plus i am doing the grapefruit diet also!
Avatar f tn There are plenty of antidpressants on the market and sure there are ones that do not cause weight gain. In fact some might cause weight loss. My hypo sister takes lexapro, she hasn't gained weight, in fact she lost big time, although not saying it is due to lexapro. Thyroid treatment should be based on the latest TSH level with another test in 4 to 6 weeks to confirm the first TSH test. Treatment should not be based on previous years because TSH can go back to normal in some people.
Avatar n tn WOW, reading your comments on Lexapro is so soothing to me, I have been telling my doctor for four years since she put me on Lexapro I can't loose weight and I swear Lexapro makes me gain weight. Her answer was when you turn 40 it gets harder and harder to loose weight. All my life I have been underweight, and when she said I had an anxiety disorder she put me on Lexapro. What a mistake, I am know 180 pounds and I can't loose a pound.
Avatar f tn Lexapro can cause weight loss or weight gain. I have heard about Wellbutrin for weight loss. But I wouldn't recommend that he just starts using it again for weight loss. It was for sepression so the dosage prescibed was for that condition. Encourage him to see a doctor.
Avatar n tn A few months ago, my friends and I started to notice that I have been losing an excessive amount of weight. I don't work out and I eat regularly. I know my medication (I take lexapro) isn't responsible for this because I've already consulted with my doctor about it and they say it's nothing. This is really starting to scare me. My menstrual cycles are also regular too and I don't think this can be a factor to this.
