Gwen C:
Has anyone noticed losing weight as a result of taking anti-depressants and ADHD meds? I've lost 30 pounds since I started taking these meds last Oct. I know the ADHD meds are a speed dirivitive. But they have made me calmer. Not speedier. Now I am 6' tall and I did start at 205. (yuck) So maybe it isn't such a big deal.

Hey, Gwen!

I too Paxil for a little over a year.  During that time I gained weight steadily.  I then switched to Lexapro and the weight gain stopped and then began to slowly go back down.  I have some other medical complications and have now lost back all the weight and more.  But I'm short at 5'6".  Which one are you taking?

Hi Kristi,

Adderall for ADHD and Straterra and Zoloft for the anxiety and depression. Fairly low doses and they work well as a unit.

I hope it's the ADD medication.  I jsut started yesterday and I'm also trying to lose weight at the same time.
