Hi, I am 48 years old. I have been diagnosed with Bipolar 2. I have been using Cipralex 10mg together wilth Wellbutrin. Since the last quarter of 2008 Cipralex was no longer available in SA. At the moment I am gaining weight and as I am short and do suffer from asthma and a heart defect, this is very uncomfortable. At the moment I'm living in Mali where there are no doctors available that who are specialised how to treat this situation. Any suggestions? Thank you.

I don't understand why people say Lexamil makes one put on weight. Is it that it stimulates your appetite and therefore one is prone to put on weight or do the kilo's just pile on out of nowhere? Thanks!

I have recently been diagnosed with Bipolar and put on Lexamil. I have only been on it for a week but I have found that I am contantly hungry and especially late at nights. (I take the meds in the morning) I am pre-diabetic and have high blood pressure so am taking medication for that as well for the last 2 yrs. The doctor also put me on fluaxnol for depression. Is it the Lexamil that cld be increasing my appetite as I already struggle with a weight problem.

Wow I have had the same problem, I also get up at night to eat and am aware that I should not do it but I feel out of control and sometimes have 2 slices of bread and then I go back to sleep

i was on lexamil for a year and a few months...
within the first six months i had gained 16kg....
i ate the same as i had before i started taking lexamil, i had actually started eating healthier round about the time i started taking lexamil...
so, from my experience, i didn't gain weight from eating more...
i don't know what exactly the drug changed in body to bring about this change, though...
