i'm currently on paroxetine and some other meds. for mental health and i cannot go off of them and i know i have trouble losing some of the weight. i currently weigh around 231 lbs. and i seem to lose around 2 lbs. a week or so. i just wish that i could be back into a size 12 dress and pants would be great i don't know if i'll ever see that size again. but i keep on trying so i guess that is the main thing.

I have noticed that I gained weight being on Zoloft, Risperdal and lorazapam. I can't go off my meds and I have a terrible time losing weight. I think a lot of my problem is that I tend to lose my mind when I get too anxious and start to graze which leads to all out binging. BLT's (bites,licks and tastes) get me in trouble also. I need to have more willpower.

I to gained a lot of weight with both paxil and lexapro.
I am on cymbalta now and so far so good. I have a thyroid problem that also makes gaining weight easy so I have to be extra careful. You might try journaling as well.
Good luck.

Did you gain weight while on it before? I gained so much weight on lexapro, so quickly, that I wouldn't dare go back on it.

Talk to your doc about which drugs cause the least weight gain. Try yoga and breathing exercises, too.

I was thinking of starting to take it again but I'm worried it will interfear with my weight loss goal.
