paxil and weight gain

I'm 33 taking Paxil. I have shot up 15 pounds in one year. I work out 5 times a day and have a balance diet. I'm kicking this drug to the curve, if you can, do not take it. You will get fat!!!

Paxil and Zoloft are notorious for weight gain, over a year period I gained 30lbs. I switched over to Celexa and didn't gain anything, but I couldn't get off the extra weight. Celexa is a good drug if you have MDD, I had more energy.
