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.

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

2 part question: 1. Gabapentin (neurontin) has a side effect of weight gain in some individuals. 2.
