Slow Weight Loss From Paxil?Updated
I have been on weight watchers diet for 7 weeks and have lost only 9 lbs. I feel like this is slow. I was wondering if Paxil could be a cause of this.
I too have joined Weight Watchers & I'm having the same problem, I have gained 70 lbs. or better since I have been on paxil for the last 2 years. Paxil really works for me, I have tried several other anti-D. so I was relieved when the Paxil, helped balance me, However this weight issue, is very depressing within itself
Yes, Paxil contains the active ingredient Paroxetine, which is an SSRI antidepressant, and it has been known to cause weight gain, and in most cases, the weight can't be lost, until the person stops taking it. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and mood changes.
Have you spoken to your respective doctors about the problem? There are some weight neutral medications that you might be able to try.
