> My meds have basically saved my ass..I'm no longer depressed, and have very few anxiety -ridden /panic attack days...HOWEVER ..I am turning into a fatass..a huge happy blob...well err not really happy about the weight thing...that's why I am turning to Babbling friends who have had experience with this sort of thing. I have actually resorted to "Slim Fast" (Yuck) I swear everyday i wake up I have put on another pound. I"m not used to this since I have always been slim & trim (When I was depressed I hardly ate at all) Is this the trade-off? I must say I am grateful for how I feel...but if this continues, I'll surely die of a heart attack!!

These drugs slow down your metabolism, so the
only real defense is to eat less, which is hard
because some of these drugs actually stimulate
one's appetite!

Having been on AD's for going on 15 years now,
I have noticed that I am not aging as fast as
others in my family. Has anybody else noticed
this effect? One of the primary ways scientists
have extended life in mice is through a low-calorie
diet which has the result of slowing everything
down. By taking an AD and eating less, we may in
fact live longer than we might have otherwise.

Oh, and probably a lot happier...
