> Hi,
> I have been on other SSRIs, but the past week and a half have been on Paxil at 25mg, now just going up to 50mg. I have been exercising every single day, high intensity. Usually I start to see myself slimming down a bit, even if its barely noticable, but the past few days I have been noticing myself seem a little puffy or fatter...does paxil cause edema, water retention at all? Differentially moreso than other SSRIs which have never given me this problem? Or bloating?

> Or maybe I am imagining it. I can't afford to look any fatter, and i'm trying my hardest to lose weight now, so water retention is a bad deal. I think i'm going to go back on a low-carb diet though, that always helps.

Not good news, I'm afraid.

Paxil is the SSRI that is associated with the greatest amount of weight-gain. I'm pretty sure that it is all fat. I don't know what to tell you regarding water retention.
