I wish I could help, but I am in the same boat as you. I took Prozac for several years and at first it was great. Then the effect wore off. My doctor switched me to Lexapro, first 10 mg. and now 20 mg. I can't say it is helping. Plus I am really gaining weight and am so very tired!
Hi Hope42Day, I wanted to welcome you to Healing Well forum. We are happy to have you.
Weight gain is a common side effect of all of the antidepressants unfortunately. I also experienced some weight issues with the antidepressants I have been on over the years and noticed a 10-15 pound difference between going on and off these type of meds. If you are gaining a bunch of weight that is not going to help your depression any and neither is fatigue...I would suggest you call your doctor and see about switching to something else. Take care ~ Elisha
