I'm not sure this is letting me post anymore. I don't know why. But I'll write it anyway and then be angry when it doesn't post. And no one will know, b/c it won't be posted. Anyway. I can't stop eating I have gained 50 pounds in the year I've been on meds and am now back up to my top weight -- 190 on 5'3". I had lost it all so slowly and so well. Now I'm back in the clothes I thought looked fit for a hippo. And my reflection in windows makes me sick. Self-loathing. I don't care why I eat. I just want to stop. I also want to be able to get out of bed and move around, but the lamictal and effexor have made me so tired. And I just don't care about anything. So i eat and eat. and eat sweets. Has anyone found a way to shut off that part of the meds. And I know a lot of it is me and my willpower.
