eyes   Hi Teri and Everyone!!!!
    This is MARYME and I know it has been awhile since I posted here.  I resently posted in Depression since that's what I've been feeling for awhile.  I am going through changes recently both physically and mentally with depression.  I gained 10 lbs on Paxil, yes it helped me for nearly a year and now I'm having problems due to financial problems, probably filing for bankruptcy.  I feel like a failure, can't help it, yet it is weighing heavyly on my mind.  SUCKS.  Trying to move on here.   I saw my cardio on 8/18 and yes I am still depressed and upped me from 20 to 40 mgs. on PAXIL.  HELP, stop the world I want to get offffff!!!.  I pray and hope that I do not gain anymore on Paxil, I could swear I was warned about Altace not Paxil.  Anyway, I will keep you posted on my ongoing saga. 
Take care, God Bless and be well all!!!!!

MaryMe, what were you warned about with the Paxil? What I understand about Paxil, if you are talking weight gain, is that it can contribute to weight gain. Something about SSRI's slowing the metabolism. I'm sure if you do a search online you can find lots of information. Do a google search. I'm sorry this has happened. That has to be frustrating.
Happy Grandmommy to Amanda, Alayna, Wyatt and Ezekiel

MaryMe!! tongue  
 
I'm so happy to see you back here on the cardio forum once again - I've been worried about you and it would seem rightly so.  Not that I'm one to talk re stress and all, but I recently went through a severe depression as well.  I went from Lexapro to Zoloft 100 mg.  I am sorry to hear that you've been feeling so badly and I hope you keep posting here!  You realize that many people with heart disease suffer with depression and sometimes it goes along with heart disease.
 
You are not a failure!  This is a pitfall in your life and you will go on from here.  I know all this happening isn't helping your mind set, but don't give up!  I'm here for you, along with many others!
 
Take care of you that's number one!!  Hugs and Love, Teri tongue

    Hmmm..I have been on Altacand (Altace) for awhile and was on Plavix for almost a year and never had any weight problems and never heard that as a possible side effect..Maybe just being depressed in general increased your diet?..I know depression is common with CAD so don`t feel you are a failure for feeling that..And don`t worry about bankruptcy..It`s not as bad a process as people fear if you are just a small individual...Anyway ..Please keep us informed :-)
