Avatar n tn Does this mean I will develop a worse case of eye floaters , eyc., if I take Luvox? And naseau and losing weight? I cannot afford to be more naseau and to lose more weight as I have lost 45 pounds due to not eating . Also luvox is the only one that says stomach upset and higher incidence of panic and suicidal thoughts? I have also been told to try L-Theanine , GABA, and 5HTP fir my severe anxiety depression and OCD since I have such a fear of the SSRIS.

Avatar f tn So , I have been on celexa for about 5 years and went off that because of my crazy weight gain.. Went on Effexor for about 6 months and I am gaining more weight!!! I have cut my calories, cut my sugar , went to a Nutrisionist , ate exactly how I am supposed to, exercised everyday, cardio and weights .. I have always been skinny ..
Avatar n tn I have been on a ssri for about five yesars. While on Effexor I had some weight gain after my pcp upped the dose to help with hot flashes. I titrated myself back down and was having slow but moderate weight gain. (10-15 lbs over 5 years). Six months ago I switched to Paxil for insurance reasons. I have since gained anoth 15 to 20 lbs. I am not sure if this is due to meds or menapause.
Avatar f tn height 5ft3 so not under weight lost weight after uncharacteristic weight gain from 8st to 11st(2004-2006) ..?trying to sort myself out,, Any ideas?
Avatar f tn I was wondering, at what dosage did you notice a gain or loss of weight? I've read about people either gaining or losing weight, but no one says what dosage they're on. I'm taking 25mg right now and the doc and I were talking of moving me to 50mg. Standing at a whopping 5ft, I of course worry about the weight gain.

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?
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.
Avatar f tn Idk your not supposed to lose weight in pregnancy. I mean sOme ppl get really sick and help it but you really shouldn't lose just to lose. You should talk to your doctor about it.
Avatar f tn Hey ladies I'm 21weeks and keep losing weight. Im always been a petite woman but I was pushing 140 at 6 weeks now I'm down to 127. My doctor a first had no concern and suggest as long as I gain the 25+pounds by the end ill be fine. But now it has become an concern. I feel like I eat pretty good foods and smaller but more meals daily. But I'm not packing on the pounds. This is my second baby after an 8year gap I was 170 having my first at delivery.
Avatar m tn I would have to agree that we all react to medications differently. I personally lost weight when I went on an SSRI (probably because I exercised more). Some people put on weight and there are probably multiple reasons for it. For example, I read some study where it linked taking an SSRI with an increased appetite for sweet foods, however, I always take this with a grain of salt. I look at it this way. If the pros outweigh the cons of taking the medication, then I usually will stay on it.
Avatar f tn How long did it take you to lose the weight you gained? Was it a matter of time? I have never had a problem losing weight until now and I am terrified that it will never come off. What if the meds changed me for good?! Hope to hear from you soon!
Avatar f tn Are you guys losing weight without trying or are you having to count calories and or working out to lose it??
Avatar f tn This is my first baby & I'm 15weeks , I've been eating nonstop even after I eat a few minutes later I feel hungry again . I haven't been gaining no weight , instead I've been losing it . I haven't been throwing up , & don't know what's going on ??! Has this happened to anyone else ?
Avatar f tn You know, I sometimes hear stories from people stating that their SSRI meds caused them to gain weight. This has never happened to me on any SSRI or SNRI medication. Now I take a Tri-cyclic antidepressant and YES that has caused me to gain some weight, but then again Tri-Cyclics are notorious for that side effect. I read an interesting medical artical a while back that talked about SSRI's and their effect on weight.
