Do people LOSE weight while on an SSRI?

Posted by Trepanist on September 22, 2008, at 22:12:48

Hi all. I've been on Lexapro now for a few years and will probably continue for the rest of my life. I've gained about 70 lbs, which I attribute to a course of Risperdal :(

I desperately need to lose this weight for obvious reasons, but am concerned about what to expect. All of my doctors say that there's no metabolic change from the drug, it's just that I eat more. So, it follows that simple diet and exercise should do that trick (I'm lacking both).

Please let me know what your experiences have been.
