Ok, I know I asked this previously on the A/P forum.  But I continue to struggle with weight issues on Lexapro, very frustrating b/c I am training to run competitively.  I went off lex for a while and did not do well, am essentially very scared to go back to where I was a year ago w/o medication. But off Lex my weight dropped fast.
 
Going to Dr. tomorrow, she put Prestiq on the table, Prozac as well.  I know all these SSRI/SNRI affect everyone differently, but please share any exp with these drugs.  Especially related to weight.
 
Thanks as Always!

Ask about Wellbutrin.................it usually does not cause weight gain.

Prestiq is so new I don't know if there is enough info out yet to be able to tell is it puts on pounds.  It is very expensive.

Well I've never heard of prestiq, but I've had bad experiences with prozac. It gave me migraines and it also caused me to start hurting myself.
