I have lost 5 pounds in 2 weeks while on cel exa. Of course I immediately start thinking it is because I must have cancer. I don't. All my blood work is normal as well as my tests. Health anxiety sucks and I just want to feel better. Celexa doesn't seem to be doing anything for my anxiety.

I have been on Celexa twice and both times I lost about 8 pounds in the first week. It really decreased my appetite so I wasn’t snacking as much and really just eating the three meals a day. It was super concerning to me too but it is a normal side effect! Both times I discontinued use, the weight came right back haha. I hope you find relief, health anxiety is a beast.

My Dr has upped my dose to 20mg and the last 2 days my appetite seems to be coming back. I'm glad I'm not the only one that is losing weight. Thank you for the reply.
