Losing weight after depression

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight after depression


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.
Avatar n tn Anyhow Effexor did wonders for my attitude however after 3 years I am now convinced that it was the cause for all the excess weight. Anyhow I was wondering if the weight comes off after I get off the meds? or am I stuck with excess weight forever in which case I will be contacting my doctor because they lied to me.
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 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 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!
Avatar f tn I’m also gaining weight without changing my diet, I’m losing a lot of hair (I’ve always had thicker hair), and my skin has become much drier. (I’ve always had more oily type skin.) I’ve felt like I lost a part of myself, and I just cry and cry for hours sometimes. I had my thyroid checked and it is normal. Is there anything you can recommend for symptoms like these after losing an ovary from a benign, ovarian cyst? Thank you for your time and help!
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 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.
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?

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 Okay, after having my daughter 2 years ago, my health seems to be getting worse. Instead of losing weight, I keep gaining, always fatigued, low sex drive, depression, acne, dry skin, hair loss, bad short term memory, temperature sensitive, heavy periods.
