(I took the test because I had gained thirty pounds in three months and thought it could be my thyroid. In the end, my pdoc and I figured it was the Celexa. Since being off of Celexa for three months, I've lost more than half the weight) > Sarah

I had the same experience, Sarah ~ a 30 pound weight gain while on Celexa. My endocrinologist realized before I did that the Celexa was the culprit. I was gaining about 2 pounds/week regardless of diet or activity level. It just showed up like clockwork week in and week out for four months. As soon as I stopped it, I immediately stopped gaining. Some of it came off quite fast, but now I'm having to work hard to loose the rest of it. My Pdoc said it's not known if metabolic changes (caused by various ADs) are reversed once the drugs are discontinued. I find that pretty disconcerting.
