Avatar m tn I'm currently taking 20MG of Citalopram, once daily before bed. I'm also taking Belladonna Alkaloids with PB- two tabs 4x daily for IBS. I had weight loss issues with the IBS symptoms- since a major side effect of Citalopram can be weight gain, is the fact that I'm merely holding weight now instead of losing it a result of Citalopram? i.e. if I wasn't on it, would I still be losing weight? I need to gain weight back, not lose or hold it.

Avatar n tn My doctor recently put me on 20mg of citalopram a day for depression and BDD, after looking at the leaflet and reading reviews from people, I am very concerned that I may put on weight with this drug. Is citalopram usually associated with weight gain? Is this usually due to increased appetite? I am very worried about this as my issues with body image make weight gain a terrifying though for me..
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?

Avatar f tn The depression/anxiety did not go away so I went to see a psychiatrist who put me on Citalopram at 40 every night. This was working well after the first few weeks of side effects; then my sex drive disappeared. I couldn’t live like that so I went back and he put me on the GENERIC of Wellbutrin at 150 daily. I gained 15 lbs in less than 3 weeks and the depression came back - plus no sex drive.
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Avatar f tn Hi, I was started on nefazadone hydrochloride years ago, worked well but was withdrawn from the market, citalopram for about 12 years, weight gain and few other side effects.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.
