Is it possible to gain 12 pounds after being on the generic zyprexa for only 2 weeks. I went from 196 to 208 , two weeks. I was on dekopate and gained weight after I went off of it I lost weight and now I'm on the generic zyprexa n have already notice a weight gain.
I've been on Pristiq (another anti-depressant) for about 4 months and I have definitely gained weight and very quickly. I have was always been very slim (averaging 105-108 lbs.). In the short time I've been on Pristiq, I have gained 20 pounds (3 lbs. just last week!). This was something that never happened to me and to be honest is a bit scary because I don't know how to control this. Just sharing so you know that you aren't crazy and yes, these meds can make your body do some crazy things... like gain weight FAST. I've begun watching what I eat and working out to try and combat it. Good luck in your path to wellness as well.
