Losing weight after ssri

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight after ssri


Avatar n tn Is ssri weight gain dose dependent?
Avatar n tn 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 .
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 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 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 I posted this question in the Neurology forum before seeing this Dysautonomia forum. I was recently diagnosed with autonomic neuropathy based on my doctors "hunch" from my symptoms, not based on any official testing. I actually didn't realize there was so much testing until I saw this forum yesterday. Was wondering, has anyone else experienced extreme weight loss (aka wasting syndrome or cachexia) with autonomic dysfunction? Perhaps due to poor digestion/absorption?
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 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 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?
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.
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 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.
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 Im 9 weeks and im losing so much weight and its worrying me because I dont have any morning sickness just nausea all the time...im worried what should I do? My normal weight before was 115 my first dr appointment I was 110 today I had a w.i.c appointment and now im 103...im scared somethings wrong?
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!
1033596 tn?1252519593 Now I want to lose this weight and more through diet and exercise. Other blogs state that losing weight while on these types of medications is VERY difficult. I have found this to be true. Getting started is hard because my desire for food has increased--particularly with carbohydrate rich foods. Right now I am exercising vigorously once a day, and I have cut back on my alcohol consumption by a lot. Still--I battle with snacking. Any suggestions?
Avatar f tn It's also possible that 166 was not an accurate weight or was due to water weight. Not that gaining 6 lbs in a week is impossible, but it's unlikely. That would require an extra 3000 calories per day. Extra. I doubt you're eating 4500-5000 calories per day. :) More likely, you were closer to 161-162 last week aside from water weight, so the 163 this week is right on target.
Avatar f tn So my dr told me that I am losing weight today at my appointment. I know its natural in the first trimester but my dr is concerned and says I need to start gaining. Problem is I am never hungry. I eat a small meal at lunch time and feel completely stuffed the rest of the day/night. Anyone have any suggestions?? I'm already high risk, I don't want anything else to happen too!
5147790 tn?1364304489 t that hypothyroidism, insulin resistance or PCOS, all of which can cause weight gain and/or make losing next to impossible. Good luck and keep posting.
