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.com/kk53lup. ...Read more

I am skeptical about it helping but it seems safe to try (though I am concerned it contains msg). See comment:. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

2 part question: 1. Gabapentin (neurontin) has a side effect of weight gain in some individuals. 2. The combination of Citalopram (celexa), Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) (amphetamine/ dextroamphetamine mixed salts), and Gabapentin is a form of polypharmacy without major contraindications, except that it's polypharmacy, which should be minimized if possible.

Supplements?: It depends on what is in the supplements? If you are taking a mixed diet, there is no need for supplements, and you should not try to gain weight if your healthy but just skinny.

Is sam e safe? Does it cause any weight gain and can I take it with progestin only birth control pills? Thanks
SAM e: Supplementation with s-adenosylmethionine (sam-e), has also been promoted as treatment for osteoarthritis.
