Hello, I'm struggling to find some decent information on this, and was hoping someone who may have been on SSRI's (or is) could comment on how it affects or has affected their cycling. Mainly, I'd like to know if anyone has noticed a change in heart rate or breathing. I.E. Can you not get your heart rate as high when on SSRI's? Or, the opposite... Does your heart rate go through the roof when exercising on SSRI's? Also, I currently do between 50-100 miles a week, plus 2 or 3 spin sessions a week, but am still worried about all the stuff I've read about weight gain from SSRI's. Has anyone noticed any weight gain? I ask this, because the discussion on SSRI's causing weight gain or not is really untrustworthy, as I don't think people are honest about their eating habits/exercise routines on the net - I mean, I could be lying couldn't I? Plus there doesn't seem to be enough information on it either way. I'm confident I do enough exercise to completely eliminate weight gain, but after reading so many stories of "I went to the gym every day for 3 months and didn't eat a thing but put on 120lbs" I'm starting to wonder if there's truth behind it. I was hoping a cycling forum might help me get a more realistic understanding. If no one is on them, or hasn't tried them I'd prefer to not get a slating off them for considering trying them. But anything helpful or constructive is appreciated, positive or negative. I'm aware cycling is the best anti-depressant, but right now I'm in need of something else too, but I don't wanna prevent myself from getting up hills. Thanks! P.S. I think Cycling News did a topic on this, but the link I found for it was dead.
