Stopped Doxepin Because Of Rapid Weight Gain.

Sophie Says:

I have been taking doxepin for about 3 months. I gained over 30 pounds. I stopped taking it this week. Has anyone had this problem?
Did the weight come off after you stopped taking it? How did you do it?

Hello, Sophie! How are you?

Most antidepressants, regardless of their class type, are known to cause weight gain. But yes, it usually does fall off, once you stop taking it, though it may take a month or two.

Have you tried any others? There are some, such as Wellbutrin and Prozac that don't usually cause the weight gain, but can treat the same types of conditions. Their typical side effects, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth.

Is there anything else I can help with?
