I'm a 38 yr old Fml who has been taking Lexapro. It causes weight gain, but helps with anxiety. Can I use Wellbutrin (bupropion) instead so as not to gain? Thx!
See your doctor. If the lexapro is working and you are getting more restful sleep, the weight will not be such a factor. Wellbutrin (bupropion) is a possibility that you will have to talk to your doctor about, whether adding it or switching to it. It is best to stay with what is working for you. If you feel better, you will exercise more and sleep better, both of which help with weight loss. Feel better.
