- Losing weight gained by Zoloft?
- Q: I started taking Zoloft in July 2008. Since then I have gained 20lbs, I get terrible night sweats, and just flat out exhausted. I started on 25mg and now I’m at 150mg. I’m tapering off of them now but I have read that the weight gain from the Zoloft is incredibly hard to get rid of. It would be helpful to get some stories from others who have gone through this more recently as I can only find readings from a few years back. I’m not looking for diet tips or exercise tips, I already eat a very well balanced diet and I work out daily so please refrain from coaching. I’m just looking for experiences from others to help me out and make me feel like I’m not alone. Thank you.
- A: I have gained about 50 pounds in three years on Lexapro. I was JUST told by a gastroenterologist that this happens ! And he also said it is very diffucult to lose those pounds. Well, I am on the track to proving him wrong. I think the Lexapro makes me hungry all the time. And I am determined to stop eating only what I need for good health. No more sweet stuff……with sugar in it……and no more second helpings. I can do it, and so can you ! Best wishes !
- question on medicine, weight gain, and a healthy diet?
- Q: okay, so…i’m on zoloft. again or something that is used as a substitute for it…out of the medicines ive been on this messes up my weight the most i think.,..welll going up..ive also had eating problems before. and im really worried about gaining weight. about how many calories would be a healthy…or almost healthy amount. and any ideas on keeping weight off without exercising to much and ending up sick again? sorry i know this question is kind of difficult but i really dont want to end up back where i was. too much is more important. so any ideas on healthy eating and healthy amounts of exercise and types to lose weight that wont trigger? and if you’ve been on zoloft or this type of medicine can you tell me how much you gained/lost. or if you stayed the same. because i dont know if me needing it more would make it less likely or any different
- A: i was on zoloft about a year ago, and i put on some weight. i was anorexic, and my doctor wanted me on medication. it worked for a bit, but i relapsed after that. as for the calories, they say anything under 1,200 is too little, and will slow down your metabolism. i would try to continue with the zoloft and see what happenes..if you continue to gain weight, and you aren’t over eating then i would ask you doctor to perscribe you a new anti-depressent that does not cause weight gain. i am also trying to find one.
- Daughter helping mom lose weight?
- Q: Okay so before i was born my mom who is 5 foot 3 inches was about 110 pounds more or less. After i was born (i am the 4th child), she began to gain weight too rapidly for it to be healthy. It wasn’t the pregnancy pounds because she gained very little with me but she has depression, which runs in our family due to a chemical imbalance to our brains so she began taking medications which didn’t help keeping weight off. She gained lots but to make matters worst she started to have problems with her knees and then about 4 years or so ago she had a very major surgery on her back which was an 8 hour surgery. That did not help her to lose weight. She can now do very little (no running, sit ups stuff like that) because of her back. I know it makes her really sad that she is overweight when she used to be so skinny. So she decided for her new years resolution is to lose 20 pounds, so i decide to help. A little information: -51 years old-weighs 160- jean size ranges from 10-12-medication is zoloft- stress level is 8 out of 10- hours of sleep is on average 6 hours-works 40 hours a week- body parts she most wants to slim down is her legs and stomach and arms- average sweet intake is 2 a daySO PLEASE PLEASE HELP MY MOM OUT(: we will very greatly appreciate it. thank you!She also eats a pretty healthy diet just to let you know.
- A: Loosing weight fast is always an unhealthy thing.There are many diets who tell you that you can loose a lot of weight in no time. And it is working, but you are doing no good to your body. And there’s also the Jojo-effect.The best thing to loose and hold a healthy weight is healthy food, less sugar, lots of drinking water, and sports.Diet has to begin in your head. And you already started to think about your nutrition. That’s an important step. It is too easy just to make a magazine-diet for 2-3 weeks and loose some weight. But it will come back soon again. If you are over-thinking your nutrition and activity, you will have a constantly good result. Isn’t that much better and healthier than a crash-diet ?- Healthy life every day!Take care,:-)
