    Antidepressants while on HCG ? Anyone out there ?

    HI. I am just at the end of my second day of loading in R1P1. I have been taking 10 mg Lexapro for a while now. I'm lucky that this low done has provided the effects I need.
    Is there anyone reading thisd who has knowledge or experience with takign an antidepressant while on HCG protocol ? Thanks !

    I have taken Xanax for quite a while. Interestingly, since this is a short acting med and I only take it when I actually feel anxiety or depression.....I don't need it on the hcg. Something about the hcg and the way it works in my body...makes my body work more efficiently therefore the attacks are fewer. In no way am I advocating getting off lexapro...but my point is...you'll do just fine and perhaps...emotionally....feel better than you had in quite a while.

    I take prozac 20 mg/day. I am on VLCD day 3 and have lost 4.2 lbs so far. My doctor said the antidepressant will not have a negative affect on the hcg. Good luck everyone!!

    I was wondering how it went for you while taking Lexapro. I am also on 10 mg and want to start this diet. Did you have any side effects?

    Thanks.

    I am on lexapro, and have maintained well in p4 while on it. I am starting p2 again right now, and don't anticipate any problems. As stated above, antidepressants really have no effect on the results on this protocol. Good luck, and hang in there

    Hi. I'm "chemically depressed" and suffer from panic attacks. Its in my genetic make-up...my grandmother was manic. Skipped all three of her children, then 3 out of 6 of her grandchildren are now medicated for depression/anxiety of some sort. I'm on 40mg daily of prozac, ambien to sleep (I'm a rotating shift worker) and klonopin when needed for anxiety and/or panic (or to help me sleep...works well with ambien). I did not have a lot to lose...but have had great success thus far with what I have lost and keeping it off (minus the Christmas cheats). I feel great on the Hcg...no problems whatsoever taking it with my meds. Best of luck to you!!
