Let's be honest and not politically correct here. I meant no disrespect to r.anne at all. The reality is that people who gain 30, 40 and 50 pounds on SSRIs and other ADs are often very unhappy with the way they look [and many stay depressed because of this]. They did not have this problem before taking the meds. If a book, or anything else helps self esteem, I'm all for it, but we live in a physical/material world, and most people are not happy with massive weight gain. This is a very serious situation for a lot of people. I apologize to r.anne for being a bit curt about her recommended book. My annoyance is with the drug companies actually; putting in their literature that these meds may cause weight loss; now there's a laugh...especially as a side effect of Paxil!
