... lexapro and prozac are the same type of antidepressant and I doubt there will be any effect on your weight the apetite can be improved when less anxious causing you to eat more with weight gain (5 replies)
... Hope I can help ya out, I did the switch but I went from fluoxetine to lexapro. I think I was taking 40 mg of prozac and The problem I had with it is I couldn't sleep!!! ... (5 replies)
... We can all blame the meds for gaining weight - but the reality is that you can't gain weight by not eating. It is the willpower that it breaks down. Build that back up and you can have the best of both worlds. No weight gain and a Med that will work. Lexapro is a wonderful drug and I take a high dose of it and have gained ZERO pounds.

... Thanks, I have heard that they are the same type. And yes my Doc did say that I would gain a little since the anxiety has subsided. But I have a constant appetite and crave anything and everything, so I think I will try the Prozac... (5 replies)
... Thank you for your response. I think I will go ahead and try to switch to Prozac. My girlfriend takes it and said that it does give her more energy, and loss of appetite. Good luck with getting pregnant and getting off of the lex... (5 replies)
... I have been taking Lexipro 10 mg for 4 months now. It has been wonderful for my anxiety. But my Doc is concerned of the 15 pounds I have gained while being on Lexipro.

Lexapro vs. zoloft
Apr 22, 2005
... sadly the first choice is often the one thats most expensively advertised or promoted to docs, and maybe pays the most frequent flyer points! if wanting a SSRI, consider generic prozac, its cheaper and prozac has been studied a lot all over the world for a long time so is the safest, I dont think any of the newer SSRI's have been shown to be any better (4 replies)
... I started taking Lexapro in July 2007. After initial extra anxiety, it finally kicked in and it helped with panic attacks a lot, even OCD. I was on 5mgs. ... (1 replies)
