Hell All! Thank you for the add to this Circle. My 8yo daughter has diagnosed ADHD, Inattentive Type and An Anxiety Disorder. She is currently on 1 mg of Guanfacine/Intuiv (ADHD) and 15 mg of Prozac (Anxiety). She has been taking both medicines since March of 2015. She has gained 33 pounds in 18 months. Our Dr. is adamant that the Intuiv is not causing the weight gain. He suggested a full Endocrine Panel which she has already been tested recently, and all is normal for Thyroid (TSH, T4, T3 and T4 Uptake), Diabetes (AIC was 5.4) along with a full CBC panel. Once I told him about the blood tests, he said maybe its the Prozac. I have been on 10mg of Prozac in the past and no weight gain. Does anyone have a similar experience to weight gain with either Intuiv or Prozac?
