panic disorder

I have been taking Paxil 20 mg for panic disorder for approximately five years. It has worked very well. Additionally I take Wellbutrin for depression. Is the Paxil causing the 20-pound weight gain around my midsection? Is there something similar that I can take that may work as well, and not cause weight gain? I've also been less active due to a hip injury, but I feel that the Paxil has been a contributor. Yes?


  • Many people report weight gain from Paxil. When on it for 2 years back in the '90's I put on 40#, Easily lost the 40 in the 2 years after stopping. No suggestions on what else to try.
    Severe DDD, Severe neural foraminal stenosis at 2 levels, moderate canal stenosis at 2 levels, significantly impaired left shoulder & arm function. Chronic moderate compression fracture at C6.
