> > I'm curious to know what side effects go along with the antidepressant drug, celexa. I recently went to the doctor in reference to a weight problem. I am 2 pounds below state regulations for phentermine. He explained to me that when I take care of my anxiety and depression, that my weight problem would take care of itself. I've searched the web for these side effects, but I only find dry mouth, nausea and sleepiness. I'm definitely sleepy and have nausea. I don't think I can work and take this drug.
> I would like to know if there is anyone out there that is taking Celexa has gained any weight. I am on Wellbutrin, and have been doing well, then the doctor put me on Celexa also to take care of my attention. I am 49 years old and I do not act or look like it. I love doing sports, and I have two jobs. I was just having trouble remembering everything, I am going thru the change also. Please anyone out there please let me know about the weight gain. Thank you. Sally

I gained about 10-15 pounds on celexa, which i only took for about six weeks; however, the weight gain was almost immediate. Suffering from eating disorders, I am very careful what I eat, so it wasn't my calorie or fat intake.
I also experienced disgustingly massive sweating and insomina, my doc put me on Prozac and although its been about month, the weight hasn't gone down yet, but I am not gaining. Additionally the sweating is decreased.
Good Luck! What doctors don't understand is that if you are depressed and then you gain weight, the depression is even more severe - we can't win can we?
