Underweight and wd symptoms

Recommended Posts

Help777

Since I have been in withdrawal I have lost weight, probably for a variety of reasons, mostly a stress response and over exercising as a way of coping.  Just dawned on me that being underweight (my bmi is 16.5) might be intensifying my wd symptoms.  Do the moderators have thoughts or info about this?

thank you!

I have lost a great deal of weight since I started tapering but haven't noticed it intensifying my WD symptoms.  Unintentional weight loss is WD appears to be a fairly common symptom.

Overexercising can be a stressor and intensify withdrawal symptoms.

I lost a lot of weight in the first six months since I stopped Lexapro, I think that's normal. since then, I have lost more and can't gain, I think from anxiety. 

 

I've had a lot in the last few months. ☹️
