I am a female in my early 20s living with anxiety, depression and OCD for a number of years. I have been on 40mg of fluoxetine for about 2 years now. Helps quite a bit with my OCD symptoms but depression was still a big issue, my psychiatrist and doctor then prescribed 30mg of mirtazapine in addition to the fluoxetin. Within a few months I gained 50lbs and with the weight gain came less self confidence, less self care and more depression. I am now off the mirtazapine and in my 9th week of weekly CBT but still feeling lost and feeling awful about the weight gain. Anyone else have any similar experiences or some advice?
