Has anyone noticed a link between Lamotrigine & Fluoxetine and weight gain?
Or any other noticeable side effects of the combination of the two?

How long have you been taking them?

I find it hard to figure out whether my weight gain is my age, diet, inactivity, or medication. I have been taking Lamotrigine and an antidepressant for years and have only begun gaining weight this year.

Lamotrigine is weight neutral that much I know for sure. Fluoxetine (Prozac) can cause some weight gain, but is usually not very pronouced. Have you been sticking to a healthy diet and regular exercise?
