SSRI's are used to treat many conditions
« on: November 05, 2013, 10:38:49 AM »
The list of things doctors are prescribing SSRI's to treat continues to grow.  In addition to  depression and other psychological conditions such as anxiety, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Panic Disorder, Post-traumantic Stress Disorder, SSRI's are being used to treat eating disorders, chronic pain including fibromyalgia, Pre-mentrual syndrome, premature ejaculation, migraines, and diabetic neuropathy and other neurologic conditions. 

No matter what the indication, weight gain and increased appetite can be a side effect of SSRI's.  Finding the right medication for you is up to you and your health care provider.  Thankfully, comfortable, sustainable weight loss is possible no matter what your medication.  A win-win situation all around.

Please share your experiences with SSRI's.
