That would be a fascinating and unnerving experience for me, especially nowadays. It would make me feel like a potential unintended victim!

My ideal weight is an elusive 175 lbs. I am just getting too old and working too long at sedentary jobs, I guess. I topped 200 at the endocrinologist visit last month and I was really pissed. Most of that was weight I had gained during the few weeks of tinkering with Remeron again (which I will never touch again with a ten-foot pole). The Wellbutrin (I am bouncing between 50-100mg/day) is definitely knocking the pounds off I must say! The tiny bit of Celexa I take also puts the death knell on my appetite as well. I think I have lost about 1-2 lbs a week over the last five weeks I have been taking it, despite all of this holiday munching. GOT A QUESTION: Have you ever tried the "sister" drug to buproprion used for weight loss? I think it is diethyl-propion (?). I wonder if it would be a good switch (for ADHD sx), without as strong an AD effect?
