Weight gain and Lexapro/Cipralex...

Posted by jms600 on September 4, 2010, at 16:40:49

Has anyone else experienced weight gain with Lexapro/Cipralex? I have been taking 10mg a day for around 5 weeks now. I'm getting a constant craving for food and have noticed that I've put a couple of pounds in weight on. Funny thing is, I didn't get the food cravings until about a good three weeks into treatment - it didn't start the same day as the first dose or a day later, as you may expect.

Has anyone else had this? Most people on here seem to find Lexapro quite weight neutral or even lose weight on it. Has anyone here gained weight on the drug?

I'm also taking 600mg lithium, 600mg Lyrica and 40mg buspirone per day; however, I've never had much in the way of weight gain from these meds - and I've been on them for around a year at least.

Is there any over-the-counter / natural remedies I could take to stave off the hunger pangs?
