DalekParty Posted September 21, 2010 Share Posted September 21, 2010 I'd like some insight on this. So, I have been on Prozac 20mg for 3 years, going on 4. It has definitely helped, except I've gained nearly 80lbs. My activity level has stayed the same, and though I crave more sweet things, I don't think I'm overeating to the point of justifying the weight gain. When I was on Wellbutrin, I lost 20lbs in a bit over a month. But then my anxiety came roaring back and I was a raging bitch. So, now I am basically on Prozac, but I am starting to be non-compliant with my meds because I'm so sure they are contributing to the weight gain (which puts me just into the obese category, BMI wise). Would something like Effexor/Cymbalta be less likely to make me gain mass amounts of weight? When I am off anti-depressants, I am not suicidal, but my energy level is low and I'm SUPER negative about everything, all the time. Halp? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
