I was on Celexa for about 2 years and noticed about 15 pounds of weight gain. I started working out with a trainer in January and changed my eating habits as well. Still can't seem to drop a pound. Talked to my doctor and he put me on Lexapro. I have been on it for almost 2 months now and have even increased my cardio per week and eating even healthier but haven't seen a weight loss yet. Will I ever be able to lose weight while on Lexapro?
Hello laneyg16. Its a fair question, and I've really not an definite yes or no. I was on both celexa and lexapro and no weight gain. I now am on paxil and remeron and fighting the pounds. When it comes to psychiatric drugs, its open season so to speak. You might get responses from people saying they stopped lexapro because of the weight issue, and from others that will tell you, it wasn't an issue at all. I might say this is you haven't gained any more weight and thats a positive. Best to you,
