Avatar m tn Several studies indicated that antidepressants may cause weight gain when taken long term, especially paroxetine and amitriptyline (with average weight gain of 5 to 6 lbs). However, it is not conclusive if it is depression the disease itself, specific antidepressants, and/or the combinations. I strongly recommend for you to consult your healthcare provider about your weight gain and perhaps consider an alternative to paroxetine, if it is the main cause.
Avatar f tn Hey yall, I've lost about 10 pounds in 2 days and I'm 5 weeks pregnant. I haven't been eating much because I'm so worried about what's good and bad for the baby. I have awful anxiety and depression so I over think and worry about everything . I haven't been taking my anxiety medicine due to risks of harming the baby and I think that's why I can't eat and am losing weight so fast. Is this dangerous or will it get better with time ?
Avatar f tn When I got engaged I was 175 lbs, I was determined to lose weight for my wedding and got down to 140 lbs. After being married for two and a half years I was 203 lbs. I was determined to get back into shape and that's when I found out I was pregnant. I too am so worried about gaining weight during my pregnancy and losing it afterwards.
503449 tn?1231075934 I pretty much followed the weight watchers program which worked great for me. Last April, I went through some depression and put on 20lbs instantly, even while watching everything I ate. For some reason my cholesteral level reached 250 as well. After my depression, I was able to get about 10lbs off and also got my cholesteral back down. Now I'm stuck. I've tried everything to get the last 10lbs off.
Avatar f tn Geodon doesn't cause weight gain as often as some of the other AAPs, but it can do it. If you're gaining weight despite a decent lifestyle, then you might have to go off it for your physical health. And it sounds like it's not working for you. I don't know what you've tried, but Abilify might be an option that tends to be weight neutral and good for the depressive side as well as the manic side.
Avatar n tn I am taking wellbutrin for other reasons other than weight but i'm amazed at how much weight I'm losing! I have lost 4 lbs in the last month. Yesterday I was 174.2 and today i'm 174. Everyday when I weigh myself I can see that type of a difference. Don't know how it works...but i'm defintely not complaining! I'm over weight amd i'm loving this!
Avatar f tn The first thing you have to do is stop drinking sodas and make water your drink of choice... you should also stop eating processed foods and eat as much fresh produce as you can, making veggies the center of your meals. Eliminate as much bread and flour based food as you can, as well as white rice, potatoes and regular pasta. Substitute brown rice and whole grain pasta. Try to get a little exercise every day.
Avatar n tn Because I was losing sooo much weight my doctor took me off the Topamax. I stayed at a steady weight for a while and then after screwing with my depression meds I blew up again. I once again tried Topamax to get the weight off (per my doc). It didn't work. I read from other's postings that the second time around on Topamax you don't get that nice side effect. Now years later my neurologist has me on Topamax for my headaches (which it is great for).

Avatar f tn I had a Kidney Infection this past Spring and gained 20 lbs. I believe I have an infection again (after only losing 10 of those lbs), and have gained back 7 lbs. in the past week. And please inform what I can do. It is Totally setting me into a very Bad depression.
Avatar f tn I believe there are some antidepressants that do cause weight gain; you might have to cut back on your calories or step up your exercise to compensate. I would also suggest that you get checked for other medical issues, including hypothyroidism (causes depression), insulin resistance, PCOS; all of these conditions can cause weight gain/inability to lose. I might suggest that you incorporate the food diary here on Med Help.

Avatar n tn If you have cut down on fat and carbohydrates then this can explain the weight loss. There are many causes like worms in stool, depression, anorexia nervosa, AIDS, cancers especially colon cancers, drug abuse, infections and loss of appetite. Loss of appetite can again be due to certain medications, drug abuse, depression, AIDS, acute and chronic infections, cancers and hypothyroidism. Either you do not eat well or there is increased metabolism as in hyperthyroid states, HIV, cancer etc.
Avatar f tn Depression has made me gain 20 pounds in a year, and NOT from "just eating." I have spent the whole year trying to work it off - to no avail. I go to the gym, I don't drink alcohol, don't smoke, I do some form of exercise at least 3 days a week, and I am taking 300 mg of Wellbutrin. I'm losing it because of the limited results from working out as well as the "miracle weight loss drug" Wellbutrin. EVERYONE seems to lose weight on it!
7684852 tn?1437171892 ve been through more than a few detoxes, and I can honestly say that the depression and emotional turmoil are very tough to deal with. Losing the pills is like losing a best friend and our sick brains are unable to imagine enjoying life without them. In retrospect, I guess losing the pills is a lot like losing someone; be it the death of a loved one or something similar. The grief doesn't just end after a predetermined number of days or weeks.
Avatar f tn Well, on the contrary, depot shots make you gain weight. If you have been on five cycles of shots and are losing weight, then you need to find the cause.
