I feel more down with the weight gain. Please help. I have always been 10 stone. Which i was happy with. Now i am 14 stone. I have decided that i will be coming off my anti depressant to lose the weight. Please help.
Hi I have been taking Paroxetine for 3 months and gained a stone!! I am taking it to relieve hot flushes, (which it has done) but am not happy with the extra weight. I am seeing my GP next week to see if I can try a different medication. I have joined Slimming World to try to shift it but 2lbs off in 2 weeks after being very good proves to me Paroxetine is to blame. Try another antidepressant. I am looking at trying Fluoxetine.
