Dear Kathylynn,
How does the delayed weight gain work? When did you first gain some weight? How much and over what period of time? I've been on Celexa for 5 months and initially lost weight (about 7 lbs.)because I was depressed and the med. made me nauseous (for the first month or so). I've gained back like 4 or 5 lbs. over the last 4 months. I don't know if it's the Celexa or because I feel better that I gained the weight. I'm really worried about weight creeping up on me because I needed to lose the initial weight I lost and am getting depressed not that I've put some back on. Please help! Also, have you added anything like Wellbutrin to hinder weight gain? Any help would be much appreciated.

Yes, sleepy sometimes, but I've noticed that is worse during the seasonal changes, I'm actually starting to feel a little more energy with Spring/Summer upon us. I still have depressing thoughts, but I cope so much better with all the crud that happens in life. No sexual side affects, except perhaps less drive, but then I was like that before! The worst part is the delayed weight gain, it sneaks up on you, and I have gained 30 pounds and that is AWFUL! Memory loss, yes, but not bad. More of a trouble concentrating, and total lack of motivation. Don't know how much longer I want to take this drug, I'm thinking if I was thinner I wouldn't be so depressed!!
