Hi pudding, There are many, many antidepressants that can help...I too have taken a wide range and at one time felt this also after being on Prozac, Luvox, Remeron, Zoloft and now my most recent one Effexor. I have to say that I haven't as yet gained any weight with Effexor and am feeling pretty good overall. Of course, I do exercise when I can (I also have many health problems) and try to stick to a good diet but this is hard when I love food so much...
They are coming out with new antiD's all the time and there are several newer ones on the market that are showing great effects with people that have depression.
Ok, I had to come back and edit as I didnt realize you were already taking Lexapro...sorry
I was wondering if your doctor has ever tried what is commonly called "stacking"?, adding more than one antidepressant at a time to try to force a response when a single med isnt being effective any longer. Sometimes people who have been on these meds for many years find it difficult to get relief from their symptoms with a singe med so it is acceptable and often done to stack meds to get the desired effect.
