I have been taking these anti-depressents for nearly 2 years but lately I am noticing a big change in my body. I am increasing weight and although I am always on diet, drink plenty of water and exercises I cannot loos weight - could it be because of them. Can I replace them with Wellbutrin pills??I am 36 years old.

S-Oropram contains the active ingredient Escitalopram, which is an SSRI antidepressant and it has now been shown to cause any significant weight gain.


Wellbutrin, which contains the active ingredient Buproprion is also not associated with weight gain.


Have you discussed this with your doctor?

The weight gain may just be part of the natural process of aging, with time some people's metabolisms will change.

I have tried several different antidepressants over the years and have found weight gain to be a significant problem every time. I immediately put on 20 lbs overnight and this last time went from a size 6 to 14 in about a year. Which is worse, being depressed and anxious or having no self esteem, no clothes to wear and no money cuz I have to buy new clothes. Lol
This last stint was Celexa, change to Cymbalta and withdrawals off that. My MD has just switches me to WB to see if that will help. (of course it's a Watson generic).
I have two friends on WB who have been able to lose weight, so I am encouraged.
