In reply to prozac weight gain, posted by laura on March 25, 1999, at 19:31:46

I was on Prozac for 12 months. After 8 months weight slowing starting creeping up. At 12 months I quite and my weight skyrocketed at the rate of one pound per day at one point! I gained extremely quickly. My weight went from 105 to 138. I've since early July when I quit, lost 3 llbs. It had gone up and down fro 138 to 135 and back to 138 for about 4 weeks. Now I'm a steady 135.

My pharmacist says a 2 to 3 day fast drinking 8 glasses of water per day may help along with periodic drinking of 100 percent juice to keep your sugar level up. This may help detoxify your system. You should also drink at least 8 glasses of water per day even if you are not fasting. It gets rid of the toxins. He also suggested weighlifting as sweating aids in getting rid of the toxins. A diet low in carbs, little, or better yet, no sugar at all should help. He said if you stick to it, the weight will come off, but VERY SLOWLY. He did say it can take a year to a year and a half for your weight to get back to normal. So he pretty much told me to sit back and relax. It's going to be a long ride.

Good luck guys.
