Hi, I've been on lexapro for 7yrs, put on for ppd and stayed due to history with depression. I've always had some brain fog/memory issues on it and got sick of it. With my drs approval I tapered off over several weeks and added cbd oil to help. I've been off completely now for a little over 2 weeks. In that time I've gained 6#. Appetite has not changed, I'm eating the same and i know that because I'm a personal trainer and always weigh and log my food. Workouts are the same as well.
Is this sudden weight gain from decreased serotonin levels from being off the lexapro? If so… will my body self regulate? Help…. so frustrating!!
