I personally don’t think it makes a significant difference. I gained at the same rate of muscle to fat ratio when I was on Paxil as when I was off. And I was on for 5 years straight.
Take care of your mental health man. Getting off antidepressants for the sole reason of perceived better gains in the gym is a shortsighted approach if you ask me.
Let me get this straight, don’t antidepressants coz just lethargy, sleepiness and an increase in appetite??
Now what if you’ve got the willpower to hit the gym even if you are feeling lazy and also got the willpower to eat more clean foods if you are starving??
How can the medication really hamper your progress in the gym then??
You mean they can also act upon your metabolism causing you to gain more fat eventhough you train religiously and eat healthy?
Well, there are other antidepressants in the market which don’t have such harsh side effects if that’s the case.
