I started Lexapro 4 years ago for anxiety. The medicine has changed my life and I am now trying to taper off of it. However I have gained 40lbs and it has been nearly impossible to loose the weight. I gained 30lbs of it all in a 3 month span 6 months after I started the medicine. Since then the scale keeps climbing. Anyone else have this problem?
Hello nita... I've been on lexapro for 4yrs now, and have gained over 10kgs, but then i drop a few, then gain a few, n i just keep yo-yoing... Very frustrating, but i've also noticed since being on lexapro that one day im starving so ill gorge everything in my house, then the next minute, i dont eat for a week, and so on... I think this is why im constantly gaining and loosing weight, so i keep a record of what i eat each day, n try to substitute bad food in my house for healthy options, and so far that seems to have worked... Hope that helps at all...
