If you are gaining weight with paxil and looking for someone else to try, you could try Prozac. I was taking 20mgs. of that alone and was LOSING so much weight (about 20lbs in 3 weeks) that I had to reduce it to 10 mg because my bones were starting to show and I was just emaciated. Now I still feel like I have to eat everything in the house just to be at a normal weight on 10 mgs! So it might have the same effects with you too, if you are looking to lose weight with an AD you might try that. Thats just my experience though, I dont know if it works like that for everyone. Good luck!


> > > > I have been taking Paxil for approximately 3 weeks and my life is 1000% better. I started reading all these postings about gaining weight and I am scared to keep taking it now. I am battling obesity so needless to say, gaining more weight would not be good. What is this other drug you switched to? Can you start taking it right after stopping Paxil and have the same effects? Please let me know!!!

I am now going to try Paxil, and I am terrified by what I am reading about all of the women here who have gained weight while taking it! I too am battling a weight problem, and the last thing I need is extra pounds. Please tell me that there are other women out there who have lost weight on Paxil like my friend did.
