I have read that I'm not alone in gaining weight on Citalopram. I have put on around 2 stones while taking them this time on a 20mg a day prescription. Well, it began with a 40mg prescription. That's probably what was responsible for a GP giving me a prescription for 2 packs of 40mgs when I had asked for a repeat prescription of 20mgs! I've had to bite them in half!
The first anti-depressant I was ever on years ago was Prozac and it blew me up like a Michelin man, However, a friend of a friend who was on it at the same time went as skinny as anything. She is normally a big person and I'm normally a slim one. So, I have come to the conclusion that they make you whatever you weren't!
That, in itself, is Depressing!
