... noticing weight loss? I'm also on Celexa 20 mg but makes me feel palpitations and a bit jittery so I'm going to talk with my doc to put me back on 10 mg, in the past I gained weight with the meds I was given more then 3 years ago( can't remember the name) and I want to lose it back to my regular weight and how much weight does a person usually lose being on it for a couple weeks or months?
I have been on Effexor rx for depression/ anxiety for 18 months or so and have slowly but steadly gained weight. There are folks that have not, on this site. I talked to my doctor about adding or switching my medication because although I was feeling better I lacked motivation. Not crying but blah! So I started 100 mg of Wellbutrin with the effexor, I had no side effects compared to starting other meds and and feel better, bonus In four weeks I have lost 5 pounds was not trying. But be carefull one of the side effects ( rare ) of Wellbutrin is seizures and these occur more often in folks that have not eaten, do eat sensibly.
