Well, I was one of those posters about the weight gain and so far I have not been able to get the weight off which has been depressing. But I read recently someone said they were finally able to it only took 3 times as long. But that is better than never. I am starting 5-HTP today which is herbal and supposed to help depression among other things. I had to let all the drugs wash out of my system before starting it and I can tell you, I didn't realize how much Celexa was helping my mood! I have been hopeless and desperately depressed. I thought it did nothing for me. I wasn't unbelievably happy or very motivated or social and I was at 60 mg and took it with Buspar 60 mg. But coming off, I realize it was better than being so low in the dumps you were scared. I am irritable also. It's LOW. I am looking forward to this herbal stuff helping. I need to feel better. One thing I noticed about Celexa since I am off is that I enjoyed food SO MUCH MORE! Not that I ate more. I ate normally. But the way I enjoyed it! It was better than most other things I could think of. Almost worth going back on it!
Anyway, I am glad to be off it to try something else and shake these pounds. Maybe they can try something else for you. Wellbutrin, or something that id not associated with weight gain if you get worried. But I did not notice any gain until I was on 45 or 60 mg a day. That was many months after starting it. Everyone's body is different, so your doctor may have an idea for you. Good luck! take care.
