With brintellix anyone experienced weight loss with this medication
According to the monograph, Brintillex is essentially neutral with regard to weight loss or gain. Wellbutrin has been known to inspire weight loss in some; however, this class of drugs is not normally used in that way. Your doctor can do as he wishes, but it you have concerns, please contact your doctor.
My weight gain or loss is more dependent on calorie intake and exercise. Brintellix has had no impact.
Yes! Absolutely! I started Brintellix about 6mos ago, after being on numerous antidepressants over the past 20+yrs. I've lost almost 40lbs since then & am still losing. My appetite has greatly diminished & the only time I'm even hungry is in the evening. I have to force myself to eat during the day, which I've never had to do my entire life. Good luck!
