I've taken Wellbutrin before (about 5 years ago) and remember it helped. I don't remember any weight issues at the time. my Ob/Gyn recommends I try Celexa but I've gained about 15 pounds during this depression and really don't want to risk any additional weight gain. I usually exercise, eat well, don't drink. Does anyone have a recommendation if I should try Celexa or go back to Wellbutrin?
Celexa - I've been depressed for about a year due to stress/parenting?

Weight changes with Celexa can go either way:
Common (1% to 10% of users): Anorexia, decreased/increased weight, decreased/increased appetite"
Compare it to Wellbutrin:
Very common (10% or more of users): Weight loss greater than 2.3 kg (up to 28%), weight gain greater than 2.3 kg (up to 11%)
Common (1% to 10% of users): Anorexia, decreased appetite, increased appetite"
I would think that if Wellbutrin worked well for you with no weight change you might want to stick with what you know.
