I was on celexa for a year and effexor for a year to tread GAD. I have gained 30 pounds while eating the same or less and getting ok excercise. I am tired of the weight gain and feel sorta like a zombie so I am trying to wean down to a lower dose and eventually (hopefully...) off. Will see how it goes.

I found a website that offers some info on weight gain from ssri's and a simple method to lose weight using EFA fish oil with omega-3 fatty acids along with natural vitamin E (400iu) supplements in order to affect leptin without interupting the ssri. I am trying it as of last week.

I have seen other articles discussing the metabolic changes caused by ssri's and resultant weight gain. I believe there is a link between the two. If you like I can provide some links to articles I have seen on the web.
