Yes it is important to keep in mind that everyone is differant. I took prozac for a few days and didnt react well to it so I had to quit taking it. For me every antidepressant I have been on has made me gain weight but now I take Effexor Xr and I have actually lost weight and not gained. Which I think is amazing.
It all depends on how your body chemicals reacts to the medications. If you have stopped the med and are working out just keep up what your doing it will come off. Maybe just not as fast as you would like it too. Be glad it is only 5 pounds and not like 25 which is what I gained when I was on Zoloft. That is hard to lose and I am still at the gym trying to work it off almost 2 yrs later...
