Losing weight after citalopram

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight after citalopram


Avatar n tn Will I lose the weight I have put on whilst on citalopram and quetiapine once I stop taking these medicines?
Avatar f tn I just saw a new doctor and he believes the Citalopram is causing my weight gain. I have been on it for about 18 months. I am now taking half a pill of Citalopram in order to wean myself off of it. My doctor then prescribed me Bupropion HCL (take twice a day). He says that should help with weight loss. Has anyone had good experiences with Bupropion? Did you gain weight on Citalopram? Thanks!!!

Avatar n tn I've just been put on citalopram for depression and BDD and after reading the reviews and side effects leaflets, im worried about gaining weight on this medication...Is it the actual increase in hunger that causes weight gain or the tablet itself? I am quite worried about this as my body image issues make me scared about putting on weight..
Avatar f tn s now been 4 weeks since I took my last citalopram and nothing has changed. How long can the side effects from the citalopram affect the Wellbutrin?
Avatar f tn s use can lead to people often losing weight. This is something that has been concerning myself as well as I would stay as far away from mirtazapine on this issue as possible, although the damage initially with mirtazapine subsides over time it is initially quite a shock.
Avatar f tn Was on citalopram for 21 years and everyone I know put weight on. When I swopped for rhodiola rosea for a year I lost 5 stones. Some are def worse than others for weight gain. Contrary to popular beliefs I gained on fluoxetine too. Off antidepressants I'm about 8 half stone.
Avatar f tn re on and try a different med, though you could have weight issues with any of them. I think Prozac has the least weight side effect, but it might not work as well for you, so it's a crap shoot. Even if you switch to wellbutrin to give it a try anyway, you should slowly taper off the cit first; they don't work at all the same, and no two drugs are identical. Good luck.
Avatar f tn Hi, I was started on nefazadone hydrochloride years ago, worked well but was withdrawn from the market, citalopram for about 12 years, weight gain and few other side effects. stopped working. Escitalopram gave me fast hearbeat as did trazadone, Setraline fast or slow and irreg heartbeat. Never considered effexor xr/venlafaxine as i was so put off with the reviews of weight gain and the awful discontinuation symptoms. Prozac was great but major weight gain in two months.
1265681 tn?1270103020 I started taking Citalopram because I have been having intense weird thoughts that make no sense intrusive even. I have been having them for three weeks straight with three days of none at all. I have a history of anxiety and panic attack. I have been taking this medication for four days and the thoughts are getting more frequent and worse is this normal? My ears are all so ringing non stop will the ringing go away?
Avatar f tn Hi I switched from Fluoxetine to Citalopram about 6 months ago as the Fluoxetine was making me gain weight. Since I've been on Citalopram I've put on even more, and am now about 2 stone (14kg) heavier than I was before I started. I don't want to come off ADs as they're helping me so much, but at the same time I don't know if I can cope with any more weight gain. Has anyone experienced weight gain with certain antidepressants then been able to lose with a different one?
1469430 tn?1289618090 Blood pressure certainly can be affected by anxiety. It happened to me recently. I don't know how you make yours go up. Or down. I take clonazapam, as can no longer tolerate antidepressants. If I let myself get worked up especially when driving or at doctors office, it will be higher than when I am not thinking about it. Don't know side effects of celexa, but assume it will help with anxiety, and doc knows you have blood pressure issues.
Avatar n tn we have tried several meds. currently he is on 50 mg of vyvanse, 40 mg of citalopram and 2mg of abilify a day. his behavior is beyond horrible. should i just take him off meds?
Avatar m tn I have been on first 10 mg of Citalopram for 3 months and then 20 mg for 1 month. It was prescribed because I had a serious Cancer surgery, but they got it all. However, during my recovery, 4 family members passed away. i.e. the Rx. But now I do not want to be addicted to this pill, yet my dr. tells me to continue because of the stress I have been thru. I am more afraid of getting off them than continuing taking same.
Avatar f tn Hello, My doc has me starting citalopram for severe anxiety attacks. She has me on one quarter of a 20 mg tab for four days, then a half tab for four, three quarters for four days and finally a full twenty. Has anyone else started like this? The doc wanted to help me with side effects since I am very sensitive in the stomach. Will starting this slower make the theraputic effects take longer to show. I am desperate to feel normal again. I am on .25 of xanax to help with the transition.
2217782 tn?1394363972 This is just a query really. Recently my mum has been really getting on my case about my meds, that I should get off them and that they are responsible for my weight gain - a touchy subject for me since I suffer from EDs. I know that the side effects of both Wellbutrin and Citalopram are weight loss so I don't really see what she's getting at, especially when my Citalopram addresses my anxiety which is pretty important.
1139941 tn?1260913035 Normlly my health has been v good and my weight is in the ideal range - however I recently had some emotional and indecision probloems since I retired just under 2 years ago - I am 66 years and did suffer some depression recently (never previously) for which the doctor has proscribed Citalopram 10 mg per day now Citalopram 20 mg per day. Assuming I agree to this, what is my likely lifespan after angioplasty - no related problems or ever stroke etc.
Avatar n tn He gave me a Prescription for Wellbutrin, will this help with the weight loss? Will I be able to the weight or does it permanently change your metabolism?Now that I am over weight it is not helping with my self image. I do feel I need some medication to help with my anxiety is this a good choice? Are the side effects minimal?
Avatar n tn I'm trying to join the air force but I'm 10lbs over the limit. To lose weight I started doing 2 hours of cardio one in the morning one at night. At first I started losing but after 2 week I'm gaining what cardio should I do to lose weight without muscles?
Avatar f tn Hi hubby on wk20 on Tues out of 24wk when he finished with the teleprevir his appetite came back but he is still losing weight so far he as lost over 2 stone and we cant understand why when he eating so well.
Avatar n tn As the first comment correctly stated, losing weight fast doesn't last and leaves you weaker, which you don't want to be if you're getting ready for basic training. Why not wait to join the military until you're ready?
Avatar f tn After taking the antidepressant Citalopram for a week about 5 years ago, my eyes have been going funny in certain circumstances and environments ever since. It usually comes on after I've been watching moving and or bright images on a screen or tablet for over 10 minutes or watching television for over 30 minutes. It can also come on after being in bright sunlight or conversely at dusk. My symptoms are: my vision seems to become darker and more detailed, a bit like a negative photo.
29837 tn?1414534648 Going into the hospital, I weighed 185 (my normal weight). Upon release I now weighed 192. This after having been denied food for 9 days, then 6 days of regular diet Lately, I noticed my watch is not tight on my wrist anymore, I weighed myself yesterday. I now weigh 175 lbs. This is the weight I weighed at 27 years old. For many years now, my weight has been 185. The now weight of 175 lbs. is a loss of 17 lbs. in less than 3 weeks after leaving the hospital.
