Hey everyone.

Has anyone put weight on and found it hard to shift the weight? Ive always been over weight most of my adult life, but since being on citilopram its been even harder to shift. Ive been on citilopram for nearly 3 years and put in over 2 stone.

Any advice?

      Hi Everyone

      i gained weight too when i was on citalopram and still having trouble shifting it!

      THE best thing is to cut carbs,eat plenty of fruit and veges and go easy on the sugar. WALKING or some other type of exercise is important too. i have just had a foot operation eight weeks ago toe joint fusion so gained 2-3 kgs .I wil be back on low carb diet after CHRISTMAS!
