I've been taking Cipralex for 5 years. I went from 120 lbs. to 170. I am not a big eater. I don't understand all this weight gain. Is it connected to taking this drug? Thank you
No, that's not connected to the drug
Yes it does cause weight gain. After 6 months I had gained 10lbs so I went to my doctor and asked for something else. She gave me wellbutrin. I switched gradually from one to the other and lost all 10 lbs within 2 months.
So I know it was definitely the Cipralex, because that's the only thing I changed.
