prozac and weight loss/gain SurvivingApril 18 kids; West Virginia 174 posts

I took prozac for a long time and going back to be put on it again. Just didn't have the money to see my psychiatrist for awhile.
I swear to God it helped me maintain my weight/lose weight, since being off for a few months, I have gained a lot of weight but I don't know if that's from the depression and other factors, or the prozac has to do with it too.
Any opinions helpful

Ive never taken prozac but Ive taken other pysic meds before. Every time Ive been put on these meds the first thing my doc tells me is that it will make me gain weight. But every single time Ive lost weight rather then gained it.

Prozac made me hyper as f**k so I assume it would make me lose weight. I'm on Wellbutrin and I'm losing weight.
