> Well it is I ' the other' Jane. Wow I guess my comments were a little harsh, I must be getting better !! Sorry if i offended anyone. I am only repeating what the doctor told me and i will go educate myself St. James !

> It was not James but (the other) Jane who expressed skepticism about ssri's and weight gain. In fact, though, weight gain is a demonstrable empirical outcome for many medications, not just ad's. I suspect it has something to do with lowering T3 levels and/or creating insulin resistance. The insulin resistance would definitely stimulate the carb cravings that so many complain of. Whatever, it's a pain, and hard enough to handle without being told to shut up and deal with it.

Sounds like your doctor needs a dose of reality. Maybe a trial of Zyprexa would help him see the light.

I think it would help us all to realize here that the doctors just tell us what they've learned about the effects of these drugs. I'm sure there isn't a single drug company out there who will emphasize that there drug causes weight gain. Have you ever noticed how all the medical trials are about 6 weeks long? Doctors have no idea what it feels like to be on one of these medecines, unless they have taken them.
