Patient : Hi,
I have depression (and some anxiety) and currently take fluoxetine 20mg one day and 40mg the next. Im wanting to change medications and was wondering if you can tell me which anti-depressant you have found has the LEAST effect on weight gain and appetite increase? I have an Hx of an eating disorder and get very depressed with weight and body image related issues and desperately want to find a medication that wont lead to weight gain or appetite increase. I am of normal healthy weight but do have a big appetite which I find hard to control at times. Thanks so much.
