> > Having been on just about every AD and gaining weight on most of them, I find it interesting that I lost 45 pounds on Nardil! My appetite totally disappeared. I became obsessive about losing weight. Interesting fact, if I ate more than 600 calories a day, I would gain weight. So possibly the obsessiveness caused by the drug counteracted its weight gain potential.

I am not certain I understand your question. Yes, I am diagnosed with uni-polar depression. I have not presented any obssessive behavior prior to or subsequent to my use of Nardil(my fifth drug trial). I did experience some increase in appetite and signicant weight gain with the onset of depression and prior to any drug treatment. If I had eaten my pre-depression healthy diet while on Nardil, I still would have gained weight. The effect of the drug on my depression was not dramatic.
