Gained 20 pounds taking gabapentin. Been off of it a month. How long before the weight comes off. Very ashamed of my body.
If that antidepressant is not working for you ask your doctor if you could try Wellbutrin XL - I read on the Vortioxetine website that once yu gain weight on one antidepressant then another antidepressant that has the side effect of losing weight can make you lose weight rather than gain it. Dunno if this is true??
I am on Wellbutrin XL 300 mg for depression since July, but I am in the process of weaning off because it added too much anxiety to me however I also lost 10 pounds that I did not need to lose so I’m hoping that the next antidepressant that I start Sunday morning called Vortioxetine will take away some anxiety and let me gain my 10 pounds back. I’m female lost my bust. I’m 5’5” so 120 is much too low... I’m happy at 130. Just don’t want to gain 30 LBS on the Vortioxetine!!! We shall see! It’s all trial and error with antidepressants they all work very differently for everybody. If this one does not work for me my doctor said there are many others with no weight gain.
Hope this helps
