    I have been on Celexa for 3 years now & I have gained weight. the doctors kept telling me that weight gain was a minimal side affect compared to Paxil, Prozac, etc..needless to say that I am not happy!!

    I have been taking Celexa for about a year now, and have starting gaining only since taking this medication. I am debating on not refilling my prescripton.

    pick up a 5 or 10 pound weight at the gym and visualize that weight coming off holding the weight in your hands helps bring home just how heavy even 5 pounds of extra fat can be

    First, I dont believe pills "Cause" you to gain or lose weight. However, Celexa does cause an increased appetite, which if not watched will cause you to eat more and thus, gain weight. As far as losing, that is all on your own. My wife fluctuates in that same weight range regularly, without celexa.
