It's okay. You don't have to worry so much about it. I gained weight from it, but not everyone's the same. And if you're really worried about it, why not talk to your doctor before you start taking it? There are a lot of medication options, and I'm sure they'll be able to help you find one that won't give you awful side effects.

If you're underweight, I don't see why this would be an issue. I've never taken Celexa (though I have been on Lexapro, which is similar), but I'm pretty certain it does not cause weight loss or lack of appetite. I've never heard of an SSRI that does -- so basically, what do you have to lose (no pun intended)?

Which is probably part of why it's a good thing you are trying Celexa.
Give it a chance. Talk to your doctor about what you are worried about and stuff. I've never had weight gain from an anti-depressant. I have from other similar medications, but not anti-depressants.
It's going to take it a little while to really get into your system anyways, so...like I said, give it a try and communicate with your doctor about all of your concerns.
Good luck!



Great works are performed not by strength, but by perseverance.

^ Agreed, the only drug that's ever "made" me gain weight is insulin. SSRI's in general worsened my depression to the point where I didn't give a fuck how I looked, and started eating whatever I wanted to whenever I felt like it, but they didn't cause me to gain weight on their own. Antidepressants are weird though. I say if it helps you return to some form of normalcy, a bit of an appetite increase is something you can deal with.

I think the point in you taking it is so you can get over your depression and eating disorder, so it would be a good thing if it made you want to eat more.

I didn't say it does make you eat more. I don't know as I've never been on it. I'm just saying it might not be a bad thing.

Why might it not be a bad thing?

Because you've even said you're underweight. And based on your posts it sounds like to be healthy you need to eat more. Hence it is a good thing.
