I am afraid. I can't stop eating. I am hungry all the time. My doctor said I cannot control it, it is a symptom of this medication. I am not feeling depressed after 13 months of postpartum/major depression, I am finally on the upswing EXCEPT the one medication that has helped me has caused me to gain almost 7 pounds in 30 days! My doctor said its a chemical imbalance that the med is causing to make me starving all the time. I have no control. I try to but I can't stop thinking about eating. 24/7! It's like being obsessed. I guess it's common with this medication but I feel that if I gain to much more weight and continue to feel so out of control Ian going to find myself right smack in the midst of another depression. We are waiting one more session and if at our next session, I am still gaining and feeling out of control we are going to try a new medication. She says I will drop the weight as soon as I go off this medication very quickly. I am sad and scared.
