Thank you for your words of encouragment
You know, I knew about
these forums but never felt the need to post anything until i stopped the medication. I'm interested in how people handle the whole coming off thing. Mentally I feel fine, and you told me somehting I didn't realize before, I really HAVE had insane cravings for carbs and sugar ever since I've been on these meds. I though it was...just me wanting to eat more for some odd reason but now that I think about
it, that doesn't make sense.And yes, I realize I must be patient with myself. Proteins and fiber make a lot of sense..I have already brought down the sugar and started drinking 8 glasses of water a day, and holy crap! my energy level has really went up. You know, nivram, I told my doc that I was gaining weight and you know what he said? "You look fine to me" - not "wow! Thats a side affect I've never heard of!" or "hmm, I better do some research on this!"
For anyone out there who feels tired, sleepy, fat, depressed, try water 8-10 cups a day! It sounds too simple to do anything but it makes a difference - especially with your energy level.
Anyhow...the data is currently being recorded... i wil let you guys know.
