I believe Klonopin can cause weight gain as you have less Professionals (includes dosage details) · Side Effects of Klonopin (detailed).
I've had panic disorder (along with depression, OCD, PTSD, major anxiety... ) since childhood. I'm on an anti-depressant now. I've been on most all of the anti-depressants out there and my dr. has now told me that I'm resistant to the anti-depressants. I was on Klonopin years ago (at two different times in my life). The first time I did not gain weight and it worked wonderfully! The second time I was on it I gained a LOT of weight. I'm having a horrible time with major depression and almost constant depression and want to try the Klonopin again, but am afraid of the weight gain.
Seroquel/ Clonazepam (klonopin) / effexor xr weight gain/loss addictive? These don't list weight gain on their side effects sheets. Maybe.
I should have put my doseage: 100mg/night.
I think whether or not a med causes weight gain depends on the individual (with a few exceptions e.g. Zyprexa). People react differently to meds.
i've been on klonopin for sleep-no weight gain at all. I actually recommend this one.
Honestly I know nothing about Effexor so I just want to say that antidepressants affect different people totally differently all the time-I gained weight from Zoloft but not from Prozac or others.
i have gained 13+ pounds and I am not eating anymore than I did, does it just put it on?? i can't stand it.
Oh Hunny, stay far away from Seroquel!!! I was on here for awhile and got my weight to where I felt great.

I have the exact opposite problem, clonazepam causes me to lose weight. I even know a few people who prefer this drug over other alternatives because they want to shed some pounds. I think that's an awful idea though.
