Why does celexa (citalopram) cause weight gain? I take 60mg and have not been eating any more than usual and keep gaining weight

It's complicated: Celexa is actually more weight-neutral than other antidepressants like tricyclics, paxil, (paroxetine) or remeron. People vary in their responses, with some losing weight on it and others gaining. Weight gain on antidepressants may be connected with affinity for histamine receptors, as this increases hypothalamic amp kinase which stimulates orexin, an appetite-inducing hormone. http://tinyurl.

8yr/o gained 15lbs since July is obese throid norm but she doesn't eat much what else could cause weight gain BESIDES eating habits which are normal?

Third question, is she on any medications like steroids for asthma. Some medications may cause weight gain. Start here and enlist the help of her pediatrician to figure out the underlying cause.

Can estrogen/progesterone cream cause weight gain? Never had problems with weight until this year. Gained 20lbs. Not over eating.

Yes and no: Some hormonal regimens can cause some water retention and therefore weight gain. However, attributing a 20 pound weight gain to the hormones alone seems a bit of a stretch. Have you asked your ob/gyn about this? There are various types of hormone preparations to take, you may consider switching to see if that helps. ...Read more

I'm very paranoid to gain weight. I wanna go from eating 1, 060 calories to 1, 100 but can that cause weight gain? I'm 19 5'7 and 105 pounds

I'm very paranoid to gain weight. I wanna go from eating 1, 060 calories to 1, 100 but can that cause weight gain? I'm 19 5'7 and 105 pounds

Not likely: Weight gain is dependent on the quality of your food, calories, as well as activity level, in addition to other variables. You are upping your intake by only 40 calories. If you are active and have a reasonable amount of lean muscle mass, you are not likely going to gain weight. BTW, currently per your BMI suggests you are underweight. ...Read more

I'm on seroquel (quetiapine) 50 mg and ive gained some weight lately without eating much how does seroquel (quetiapine) cause weight gain and how can I lose weight on it.

Theories: Some believe it affects the pancreas and Insulin levels change. Also that appetite is increased while metabolism is lowered. It is very common. Advice: If possible, ask Doc to reduce dose to lowest possible or even try something different w/ less of this side effect. (hint: CBT therapy has none). Exercise like a champ. Move toward a diet w/ little wheat and also keep it low on meats. Best! ...Read more

Can too much protein in diet cause weight gain. I eat 1000 cal. Diet and I have bee. Eating around 70 grams protien. I'm afriad ill gain weight?

No: If you are really eating 1000 calories per day, every day, then you will lose weight, even if the calories are made up entirely of fat. 1000 calories per day is less than a normal human adult needs. Note that I am not suggesting that you eat a diet of 1000 calories per day of fat. ...Read more

Phenothiazine: This medication is a phenothiazine class antihistaminic antipsychotic medication. Medications of this type have historically been known to cause weight gain by appetite stimulation. Finding data on side effects of this medication proved quite difficult online. There was some information about metabolic syndrome cases but I did not see anything that had to do with edema. Without a formal pdr like print out however I cannot say for sure that at least some of the weight gain does not come from edema. ...Read more
