WHY do SSRIs cause weight gain???

Posted by super on June 14, 2001, at 12:47:22

I'm puzzled, and this is an entirely intellectual matter for me since I can't even tolerate SSRIs, BUT why do they cause weight gain? I was just reading an article that stated that compulsive overeating is a result of seratonin deficiency. If SSRIs increase seratonin in the brain, wouldn't they help you eat less and therefore loose weight?
