Paxil Weight Gain: Mechanisms, Reversibility, etc.

Posted by K. Von Balk on August 1, 2002, at 12:34:37

Hi there,

I used to post here a long time ago, but haven't been around for a while.

I just heard of an anecdotal report wherein a female on 60mg. Paroxetine gained 70 pounds in less than 2 months, and has not lost the weight in spite of tapering down to 20mg. This has piqued my curiosity with regards to the mechanisms involved in Paxil (and other SSRI)related weight gain, as well as issues related to reversibility of the latter. Anyone have any opinions, or know of any good studies just offhand?
