I'm a short person, and the weight that comes as a side effect of the medication is irritating. However, being sad/anxious/irritated is even WORSE than the extra weight. Everyone is different. With Lexapro- the hungries finally tapered off. The sexy-time side effects have not, but again- small price to pay (for me and my husband).
I am facing a med switch very soon and I am hopeful it will help shove me up from the funk!
Weaning won't be bad as long as you follow your doctor's instructions!
