anti-depressants that won't make me angry or gain weight?

Postby wantingtofeelnormal » Tue Apr 26, 2016 8:08 pm

I was first diagnosed with depression almost a year ago. The doctors in the hospital put me on Lexapro because it was one of the most mild anti-depressants. I was on Lexapro for about 9 months and gained 20lbs so I asked my doctor for another alternative. She put me on Wellbutrin, which she thought would help me lose some of the weight I had gained on Lexapro. At first Wellbutrin worked alright, but the longer I take it the more angry I have become and having major bursts of anger, which is completely out of character for me, even when depressed. Any suggestions on which anti-depressants won't make me angry and won't make me gain weight? I plan on discussing with my doctor, but want to find out from people who actually use the medications versus a doctor who merely prescribes them. Thanks!

Everyone is different, but Prozac and Paxil were good for me.
Psych Meds: Prozac 80 mgs, Risperdal 2 mgs, Lamictal 150 mgs twice a day, Wellbutrin XL 300 mgs, Xanax XR 2 mgs
