Losing weight after prozac

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight after prozac


Avatar f tn Hi all, I am severely depressed & have been taking Prozac for a month now & my doc suggested Abilify to add. I had already put on 30lbs from lexapro, which is part of becoming depressed again. I have been on the Abilify for 6days now & can tell it is having a positive impact on me. I have had enough motivation to work out the past two days & I am really watching what I'm eating. Has anyone here had success with losing weight on Abilify & prozac?
Avatar f tn Hi there. Hopefully with the Prozac, you've been feeling better! I think it is really key to be aware. One key way to stay fit and to burn calories is what they call interval training. Easy to do. Basically it is high intensity (whatever that is for you) in a burst of say 1.5 to 2 minutes and then 3 to 5 minutes of lower intensity. So if you walk, walk at a brisk pace for the lower intensity and then for the burst-- do a light job or super fast walk pumping arms.
Avatar m tn Am trying homeopathic route for a while. Love losing the weight but am feeling a little grey. Would love to find a SNRI that works without the weight gain. Any suggestions?
527657 tn?1214051850 When can I expect to start losing some of this horrible weight i gained from Paxil??? I have been off it now for about 10 days I started it in the beginning of january. 20 mgs then 10 then 5. I gained 40 pounds I look like a fat pig.
Avatar f tn I initially lost weight until I gained all and more weight back. Has anyone experienced this and have you done to help in losing weight?
Avatar f tn I weaned myself off the Prozac and found it difficult to maintain my appetite and weight loss. I KNEW I had to eat, but found even just a few crackers would fill me up. This made me quite nervous as I have had weight loss which went down to 54 kilos one other time and I sure looked anorexic! I too have had the colonoscopy, the works done but now I am hypo, and gained a little weight, (losing it again as I am trying to lose my 'winter weight') they don't worry anymore!
Avatar f tn I feel nauseous most of the time and have been throwing up and losing weight. I am often dizzy and have headaches. I have a severe loss of appetite as well My primary care doctor tells me there is no drug interaction and that I should take the medications separately. I started doing so, and my symptoms have not stopped, and have in fact gotten worse. It has gotten to the point where I can barely eat, and am spending my days in bed. What could possibly be wrong with me?
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 Anyone have experience gaining weight on prozac, any anti-depressant alternatives that don't have this effect? Besides wellbutrin?
Avatar f tn A question to anyone out there that's taken Prozac and gained weight have they changed to a different medication because of it and which one? Did it do the job it needs to without the weight gain of Prozac?
Avatar f tn If your concern is only the weight change factor just keep an eye on your weight and if you start to notice you that your gaining or losing call your doctor. The weight is one of the less serious side effects. But do your research on the Paxil and the dosage. Or nothing may happen at all the side effects vary from person to person. You may not have any side effects.
Avatar f tn i just cant stand anyone so I am losing some weight but I dont know if it is the zoloft or adipex.. anyone every experienced this?? I am not sure weather to go off the zoloft. my pms is so bad..
Avatar f tn m on Prozac, which has been around for ages as well. I initially put on some weight but that leveled out and I have read studies that say it only causes weight gain in those that are underweight to begin with. This was certainly true in my case. However I now weigh less than I did prior to tx and Prozac and it seems that I'm at my 'natural weight' and according to statistics etc I am slap bang in the middle of normal weight for my height and age.
Avatar f tn At first I actually lost about half a stone in weight, putting me in the underweight category. but after a few weeks I went back up again to almost what I was before. I didn't really experience any weight gain at any point, however I believe it's different for everyone.
Avatar m tn I took Prozac years ago after a bad breakup and after losing my grandfather. It worked great at first. Lost weight, had energy. It slowly turned in my body without me realizing it. After 3 months, I was more depressed than ever. I, at first thought that I just needed more. My doctor even told me to up the dose. I finally just stopped it and after a few days I felt better and better and then happy again.
1331182 tn?1275475604 I tried losing weight a while ago. I walked 8km a day which is equivalent to 5 miles and I was eating low carb low fat salads and I did this for 3 months and lost only a measly 3 kg which is about 6.5 pounds. Pretty crap for 3 months of trying really hard! So yeah my naturopath will help me with an eating plan plus I play netball twice a week and tonight I am starting Zumba! So hopefully when I get off these meds I will start to lose weight.
Avatar f tn Is it easy to lose weight after a C-Section?
