I gained a ton of weight on Paxil, and now am taking 10mg. of celexa. It took alot of work, but I have managed to lose the extra pounds. First of all I have eliminated added salt, processed foods, sodas, anything with high fat/sodium content...I drink at least 8 glasses of water a day..I think alot of the weight gain in SSRIs is from water rentention. I also make sure to work out every day...aerobics, yoga, pilates, weight training....I switch daily and it seems to help.

I know this isn't an "easy" takes alot of work and determination...but it also helps with the depression/anxiety. I think processed foods and the North American diet have alot to do with so many people having these disorders...this all entails changing your way of life, ignoring all the garbage they call food at the grocery store...I was in the States this summer and could not believe the amount of obese (not a few pounds overweight) people I saw...and children was very sad.

Good luck to you...I am here...for support..I understand what you're going through!
