Antidepressants :: How To Lose Weight From Paxil

Feb 9, 2006

My doctor told me that Paxil is a unique formulation that offers proven medical benefits for people with depression. Since I have problems with this disorder, he recommended me to use this drug. Although I have heard that Paxil gives you the powerful relief, I am still worried. Problem is that my neighbor told me his cousin lose weight from Paxil. That is why I want to hear is it possible to lose weight because of this medicine, and what else side effects I could expect.

Antidepressants :: Can You Take Paxil Sporadically?

I am trying to deal with my depression and anxiety as best as I can. I have never thought that something like this could happen to me, I was always a calm person. But ever since my husband died two years ago I cannot get a hold of myself. It started like a regular depression that came and went but now it is a full time condition. Since I have been taking Paxil, I am starting to feel much better. Can you take Paxil sporadically? I mean, do I have to take it when I'm feeling fine?

Antidepressants :: First Time Seizure Paxil

I took Paxil for panic attacks three years ago for 30 days and then again for a year. Now, I am reaching third week without Paxil. I heard that the longer it took a person to become used to it at the beginning the longer it takes to withdraw and I am very worried if this is true. I feel nausea, seizures and dizziness. I need something to relieve the symptoms of Paxil withdrawal. This is the first time I have this experience with medication.

Antidepressants :: Gaining Weight On Sertraline (Zoloft)?

I was wondering how common does sertraline (Zoloft) side effects include major changes in your appetite? When I first started taking it it was because Prozac completely removed my appetite and I went from normal weight to pretty much underweight. At that point I still had no appetite even when my Zoloft dose was increased to 100 mg daily.

Six months later and I’ve found myself in a completely opposite situation. I keep on gaining and gaining weight while I’m on 100 mg Zoloft. I’ve gained 20 lbs which I thought was impossible and I’m still gaining extra weight. I don’t want to stop taking Zoloft because it’s helping me, but the weight gain is starting to get to me.

Sertraline :: Trying To Lose Weight

i've been taking Sertraline for two and a half years now. I've ballooned up to a size 20 around 17 stone. I was on 200mg which apparently is the highest dose you can take according to my doctor.

Over the last few months i have managed to reduce myself slowly to 50 mg which hasn't been easy.and have now noticed that I am loosing a bit of weight. I wondered if anyone could tell me if they have experienced this to? I know the sertraline helped me to put the weight on in the first place and it defiantly doesn't help trying to lose weight while on them. I have found trying to lose weight on it very difficult. I have never certainly never struggled in the past when I wasn't on Sertraline.

Once you reduce the mg does the weight come off that easy? What ingredient causes the weight gain?

Orlistat With Antidepressants - How To Boost My Metabolic Rate/weight Loss

Whilst taking orlistat, i am also taking anti depressants which is what made me put the weight on in the first place. My doctor said i would probably loose more weight if i wasn't on the anti dep. but i am not at a place where i can come off them at the moment.

What i wanted to ask you was if you could ask your nurse if there is anything i can do to boost my metabolic rate/weight loss.

Have you noticed more weight loss when eating certain foods. I was told whilst on slimming world that peas and strawberries are good weight loss foods. But i can't live on them.
