I cannot gain a lot of weight due to other medical condition,but I really need a medication that works for my depression and anxieties.
I understand not only my self but a friend, also have put on weight because of the drug Lexapro. And the drug is indeed helpful for depression, however 20 pounds is was not the desired effect either of us were looking for.. She has continued on, but I am trying something diffrent.. Wellbutrion has worked for me, with no additional bad side effects. However I have seen on this forum, that's not always the case. Each of us are diffrent. And loosing the weight has been a lot of work. If I were you at this point I would ask the forum about this. there is a lot of wisdom out there, with no agenda, except to help one another. This website is a blessing.
