Antidepressants Can Make You Fat

While browsing the news today, I learned of a new side effect from psychiatric drugs like antidepressants (Prozac, Zoloft & Paxil), Zyprexa, Risperdal and other drugs prescribed for psychiatric reasons. That side effect is weight gain. Apparently, in some cases, drastic weight gain (to the tune of over 100 pounds). Yesterday, the New York Times has pointed this out in an article about some drugs causing weight gain.

While this is a minor side effect when compared to death, suicide and psychosis - I nonetheless thought I should point this out.

It’s just one of the many side effects from these drugs that psychiatry seems to keep as a dirty little secret. Much of the evidence showing these awful side-effects has been buried and suppressed. Fortunately, some of this data is now coming to light. Ive seen some reports that show many of these drugs are barely more effective than a sugar pill. Now the FDA is requiring a warning label to disclose the dangers of suicide while on these drugs. Studies have shown that there is a drastic increase in the risk of suicide and suicidal thoughts while taking antidepressants like Prozac, Zoloft & Paxil. Some say as much as a 7 times increase in the likelihood on considering the subject of suicide from the side effects AFTER taking these drugs.

So now along with wanting to commit murder and suicide - you’ll also get fat.
