Citalopram and hunger

Posted , 4 users are following.

hey guys, so I've been doing well on celexa. though some stressors are occuring, I'm graduating in a month and i just went through a breakup. my appetite has been stagnant. i have gained about 10 pounds, but I still have to remind myself to eat. almost like my appetite is very sensitive to my anxiety. it started before i went on celexa due to hyperanxiety. anxiety goes up and down. anyone experience this with celexa after about 4 months?

    I'm at 22 weeks on celexa and 17 weeks of that of 20mg and my appetite is still not great, I've lost about 20 pounds so far, and the doctor has seen this and doesn't seem to worried he said it's not alarming right now. But then again I still have some anxiety and never really could eat much when I was anxious.

    And as far as life events goes I think your experiencing normal anxiety that people that take antidepressants or people that don't take them would have, a rough patch that we just have to get through.

    Hope you get to feeling better soon.

    Hi William,

    Yes I have experienced what your going through. It's anxiety and the celexa. Hang in there. I have to remind myself to eat. Going through a breakup SUCKS! That can give you hidden anxiety. Hang in there!!
