I don't know if I'm going to end up going back on an AD or not. Right now I'm just on 100mg of topamax to help with my appetite. Within the past 2 years I've been on wellbutrin (caused a seizure) effexor (made me sweat like CRAZY!) fluoxetine (twice) and now topamax.
My psych wants me back on the fluoxetine now b/c she thinks it will help with my obsessiveness about my body image/weight/food etc. I talked to my gp about it and he said that since the fluoxetine didn't really help me with those issues when I went up to 60mg on it the first time I took it, then I might want to try lexapro to help with my anxiety. I've heard that lexapro can cause a lot of weight gain and that it can make you sweat! I came off the effexor b/c I couldn't handle the sweating side effect and even though I've been off it since December, I still sweat more than I did before I went on it.
If I have to go back on an SSRI or any AD for that matter, which ones are less likely to cause increased sweating and WEIGHT GAIN? I hope I don't have to go back on anything. I'm trying to find a good therapist to work with on this stuff and I hope I can just work with them and not have to deal with stupid ADs!
I'm just in a really bad place right now and I need help!
Please help if you can.
