> HA-I gained 30 pounds in two months ... my panic doc said we'd try to switch off of Paxil due to the weight gain (a total of 40 pounds!) so I went to Celexa and wham! Another 30. Celexa is well known for weight gain. My depression is still bad and my anxiety is still bad. Feeling kind of hopeless and running out of different meds to try that won't add weight (thus more depression). Thank God for Xanax.
> > As for the weight gain, give it some more time. Celexa can cause a weight gain but in most people it does not. My guess is that this side effect should also subside after you take it longer.
