> Does anyone know if Celexa is one to contribute to weight gain or weight loss?

I've taken Celexa, since September 16th. I've been on the maximum prescribed dosage of 80mgs/day, since November 2nd. I'm losing the weight that *magically* appeared while on Lithium and Depakote. In my experience, both Celexa and Effexor have similar weight loss effects.

On the other hand, be wary of the doses taken of mood stablizers and antipsychotics. Because, these two neuroleptics will blow me up like a balloon, when taken in high enough doses to induce sleepiness. My experience has been to creep slowly upward in dosage (much slower than prescribed). My therapeutic level has been achieved at much lower doses than generally recommended. I listen to my excellent doc AND to my body. My doc agrees with this approach.

Mind over Madness,
