> If anyone has switched from Celexa to Lexapro, have you noticed the ever slowly creeping weight gain? Is that still a side effect?
** Did you have a weight change? Celexa is considered weight neutral..no gain or loss. the 1 year study showed about 1-2lb gain...the 2 year study showed 2-3lbs...not significant. SSRI's in general are known for some weight gain (especially paxil) but Lexapro is like Celexa...weight neutral
