Hey guys. I switched from celexa to lexapro. I upped my dosage of lexapro to 15 mg about 10 weeks ago. Finally my ocd/severe anxiety/depression symptoms are almost gone and I feel normal, but my stomach is so bloated and I look pregnant. I am up 4 pounds on the scale. Any hope of fighting this weight on this medication? It really works for me but sadly I’m gaining weight without changing my diet.
Yeah weight has always been an issue for me once I started depression meds. May have to tweak diet and do some exercise to combat it. For me it’s worth it to feel better mentally
Exercise and take digestive enzymes and probiotics to help aid digestion since antidepressants can slow it down hence why you maybe bloated.
