Weight gain

A question to anyone out there that's taken Prozac and gained weight have they changed to a different medication because of it and which one? Did it do the job it needs to without the weight gain of Prozac? Thank you

Yes, I took prozac for a while and I looked like I swallowed a wheelie bin,I put the weight on,but that all changed when the doc put me on valium to help with my anxiety.It worked well and helped me sleep with no weight gain.Prozac also cause a huge drop in sexual desire/performance.

Did you lose the weight? I'm using something similar to prozac and I've gained. 22 lbs in less than 3 months. Nice touch for an already depressed person.
