    Hello Marishka

     

    This is a really good question...I do hope other members chime in on this.

     

    I did do some research about the weight gain and Paxil is probably the worst in this regard with what I have read.  Take a look at my article about weight gain and antidepressants.   Wellbutrin is probably one of the best in this regard according to the studies I have seen. 

     

    But know that every antidepressant is going to work differently for different folks.  What does your doctor say?

     

    Let us know what you decide...I know this is a big decision for you!

      Hi Merely Me,

      Thank you.   I read some reviews.  They were helpful.  I might ask again on here just to get more input.  Your posts are so helpful. I read one on ruminating, it was so helpful.
