I am thinking about trying a different depression/anxiety med that will help with weight loss. Which would be the best to help with depression as well as weight loss? Ive read alot on prestiq and this looks to have the best results with people all around as far as treating depression and weight loss. What are your thoughts?
maisieday,While many have experienced weight loss with Pristiq,there are just as many who have experienced weight gain. So, here we go again with the"everyone responds differently" issue. It is more than possible to loose the weight you might want to loose,through diet and exercise. Not only does eating a well balanced diet and exercise help you to loose weight, it also provides mental health benefits as well. Eating foods high in folate and Omega 3's,as well as limiting refined sugar intake,and low trans fat and saturated fat intake,have some fantastic mental health benefits.
Hi, maisieday! Pristiq and Effexor may be more helpful with weight loss than the other AD's - but it depends on your individual response.
I've had very good luck with Effexor and it's helped me immensely with my depression also.
Best wishes! WC
Yes, I have begun exercising as well as watching my diet and calorie counting. Have trouble fighting the urge for sweets and am hoping that will help with appetite control. And my metabolism is not what is used to be! My depression goes hand and hand with my weight! I was just curious as to peoples reactions to taking Prestiq. Thanks!
