Hi guys and dolls!
I took Ami. as well...gained a TON! I ended up taking a "newer" version of the same antidepressant and had less weight gain...I guess some doc's don't feel its a big deal if we end up looking like beached whales...lol
I guess if they were the ones taking the meds they might think to mention that. Now I research medications thoroughly before I swallow any kind of pills!!! ha ha. (I should have done that all along, but that was when I was much younger and trusted what they were giving me.) Besides that...isn't there a thought about antidepressants and gaining tons of weight...hmm...we make these people pack on tons of weight...won't they be depressed about that too?!?!? Oh well, maybe that is just my theory?
Anyway...maybe I am too smart for my own good?
I am taking Wellbutrin now and no weight gain there...and it even made me stop smoking...(i looked at a cigarette and wanted to hurl!----that was before I knew it would even have that affect one me)
Just an interesting story
