Hi Everyone I would be interested to know if
anyone has tried 5htp for depression or obesity.
I am weaning from paxil, I too unfortunately have
suffered the curse of wt gain while on paxil despite
my healthy habits. Since wt issues and a symptom of
my disease packing it on has not helped. My MD
has suggested switching to celexa but I am wary
of more wt gain since it's the same class of drug.
I weaned of the paxil and started 20mg of celexa with 50mg
of 5htp. I have been trying the celexa for about 2wks
while coming off the paxil, and plan to stop it as well
and just try the 5htp. I've only been off the paxil totally
for 2days am having mild withdrawals at this point
I hope that's as bad as it gets. Now that I think f it
I have had a lot of stomach upset and fatigue with the celexa
I hope I can be off it soon. As a side my poor husband keeps asking
if I think my sexual desires have come back yet
since weaning from the paxil. Poor guy. Thanks for
letting me "babble" CJ
