Customer Question

I've been in Celexa for 8 wks as a Type I diabetic and have experienced 10 lbs of weight gain.
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: I take Novolog insulin. Synthroid, Captopril. He said I would probably gain GP. My endocrinologist would not even address that I had been started on an anti-depressant
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the psychologist should know?
Customer: No
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Psychologist about your situation and then connect you two.

There are many other anti depressants.

Your doctor can change you.

Zoloft, wellbutrin [less weight gain], and others
