Hi guys, after my discussion 8 mths ago about taking citalopram tablets I have now put on weight mostly around the stomach which is annoying as I have had to buy the next size trousers up, I have always been a size 12 but now need a size 14, I have felt a lot calmer on these tablets & they are still working for me after a year now its just the weight gain that I hate, My daughter has been on these tablets but has decided to try something different as she hated the weight gain on her belly as well..Hope this helps !!!

      Absolutely..my phychiatrist was wow.when I show up to my appointment and saw the change .. she thought I quit taking the tablets..when I said I cut down on my carbs..nothing white..she was very impressed.. because the majority of people on this med..gain weight.but is only because it makes you crave bad carbs...

    I've also put on weight with this medicine. I think because I was feeling so good I was celebrating by eating lots of toast chocolates and cakes 😂

    So now that I no it's the tablet 💊 I've cut right down and trying to be a lot more active everyday

    And not having chocolate for breakfast 😂 😂

    I think u have to really watch what your eating on anti depr. And like Lois said don't eat white carbs or reduce the amount of carb intake.
