In reply to Prozac & Celexa Differances ?, posted by Christy on May 11, 1999, at 9:21:09

> I have been taking Prozac (60ml), for quite some time now. It has made such a differance in my life, as far as the depression, and has saved me & people around me alot of anguish. However,I have discussed with my Dr. the fact that I have No sexual desire!!! And have'nt for quite a long time!!! Also, I've gained probably 40 lbs. since being on it. My Dr. says the weight gain is not the prozac, I disagree!!! And so now at 37, I'm willing to try something differant if it means s sex life again and LOSING some weight!!! Celexa was the next thing my Dr. has suggested. How is it compared to Prozac in those respects ? It would certainly help the marriage, if you know what I mean!!! Thanks for any info..

>>First off, you might consider finding a psychopharmacologist in your area. If you are getting meds from an MD, he seems to be a wee bit out of touch on SSRI's.
I recently switched to Serzone, was on Paxil for 3 years, tried several others and hit a good one for me with Serzone. I have lost 6 pounds in one month and I have a sex drive again. I have also taken Ritalin for several years which worked well with Paxil and Serzone.
If you read many of the posts this month and previous months, there is not much you can do about SSRI weight gain. And your weight gain is from Prozac. You can exercise 3 hours a day and eat tree bark but it just doesn't seem to help.
I put up with sexual difficulties with Paxil before I came to this site and studied a bit. I found several more options you can try.
Good luck, Phil
