Re: Paxil weight gain details and trends?

In reply to Paxil weight gain details and trends?, posted by Joe Schmoe on June 12, 2001, at 8:08:07

I am in my late 30's and have weighed 110 lbs my entire adult life. On Paxil, I gained 20 lbs in 6 months or so-- a great deal for someone my size. My appetite did not change, but my metabolism did. I have since switched to Celexa, and with no effort on my part, 10 lbs have come off. Unfortunately, I don't feel that the Celexa address my anxiety nearly as well as the Paxil. I liked Paxil, I just didn't like the weight gain!

> I have heard a number of people say they gained weight on Paxil. I am curious if there is any research or anecdotal evidence about who is most likely to be affected by this side effect. In other words, does it tend to make heavy people heavier, or only affect thin people by giving them a heavy person's metabolism, or does it affect everyone equally regardless of your starting metabolism?
