Losing weight after Lexapro


Recommended Posts

I posted this in the SSRI pt 2 forum but thought I might get even more info if I post here, too.

Anyway, I'm in the process of weaning off of Lexapro and I'm hoping to lose the 30+ lbs I gained while on it.

Has anyone had any experience losing weight they've gained while on Lex once they get off of it?

Thanks for any info!!

'course it did take me almost two years to lose all of it. still have about 15 more I'm trying to lose but those pounds are like super glue, dammit.

;) ... super glue...!!!  You are so right! Looks like I've got around 15 lbs to lose, too.

What are you doing as far as exercise & eating go?

For me, exercise is the easy part.  I eat "right" and the portions are "appropriate" but some days are easier than others.  And for me, I'm all about instant gratification and weight loss does not fall into that category!

It must be my workouts.  My eating's been the same but I wasn't working out much in August due to vacation and then some voluntary rest for some aches and pains that I didn't want to get worse.  I've finally gotten back to the gym after all that.  Plus I think the reduction in Lex is helping me let go of some of the weight, too. 

Spike, let me ask you something:  do you think the weightloss you experienced had more to do with your eating and exercise plan than the fact that you stopped Lex?

bella-mania, to be honest--and it's only my opinion!--but I think stopping the Lex was the biggest factor. I do eat sensibly, but I'm limited in physical activities due to my handicap.

after I quit the Lex, the weight came off much faster without any changes or restrictions on my diet
