Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight during depression

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 I too am so worried about gaining weight during my pregnancy and losing it afterwards. So far due to morning sickness I have lost weight and I am down to 188lbs however I do understand that weight gain is a part of pregnancy, but it doesn't have to be feared. Just make sure you watch what you are eating and watch your weight gain during your pregnancy. I was given a limit of 15-20 lbs by my Dr and I am trying my hardest to stick to it.
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.

4715985 tn?1371582997 I havent actually puke so far during the pregnancy and ive gained my normal 5 lbs during my first three months. But in between week 12 and week 13 i lost 4lbs? Im pretty sure im eating as much as i did during the last couple of weeks. During my bad days of nausea i cant fit much but its getting better. Im just wondering if there would be a reason why i would lose weight in only a week? Im so scared that something bad will happen, is this normal?
Avatar f tn I'm almost 19 weeks. I've lost quite a bit of weight during the pregnancy. Around 23 pounds actually. I'm starting to worry the baby will be malnourished. I'm trying to eat more but I get sick. Still haven't felt movement either.
Avatar f tn In the beginning of my pregnancy I started to lose weight without try, ate all the normal stuff, now I am 30 weeks pregnant and only gained 4 pounds, but my baby is 2 Lbs more then she should be, and my doctors ask me was I try to lose weight. Have anyone ever went through weight loss during their pregnancy.
Avatar f tn I lost 10 pounds In less than a month but i had problem getting food into my system because of all the queasiness but weight loss during the first trimester is normal as long as you make sure to drink your prenatal vitamins, that will help you a lot with all the nutrients you and your baby need during weight loss.
Avatar f tn I talked to my midwife about weight loss during pregnancy or just not at an average weight.
Avatar f tn Has anyone not gained any pounds at all during there whole pregnacy?? Just a bit concerned. I don't vomit I eat little snacks during the day and I feel great. But just not weight gained. So just wondering if it seems ok?

I feel great and I have lots of energy. I was not very overweight to begin with, maybe just a little for my height. I just want to make sure it's safe.

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 So I had an ultrasound today again, I'm about 11 weeks. In the last month I've lost about 8 lbs. I was a little bigger before my pregnancy. I haven't been vomiting or anything but I've been losing weight. The baby's heart beat and everything was normal. Have any of you other ladies lost weight during pregnancy without throwing up? I'm kind of worried.
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.
