Just wondering if you know of people taking Paxil for anxiety and have had a considerable weight gain, if so what is the answer...changing to another anti dep. & which one.
I am gaining weight on Paxil but have had great results otherwise.

Thanks,
MGR

paxil is known to add weight to those who take it. most antidepressants do that to some degree, but it seems lexapro, effexor and cymbalta do that less. i am wondering if your progesterone is low. bioidentical natural progesterone is a natural diuretic and has a calming effect as well. you may want to consider that as well.
