Actually, I am hypothyroid and have been on thyroid for years (both T4 and T3). I also raised it when I recently went on lithium. My TSH levels look good, so I don't think that's it. Also, when I'm not depressed, exercise is my drug of choice. I've been a semi-professional dancer, yoga, etc., and although I don't get enough of it, I do exercise. It's been since taking Remeron and lithium that I'm porking out. I find myself craving stupid fatty substances and lots of them. Also, like you said, I'm getting older and am no longer the mere slip of a girl I used to be. I'm eating too darn much and therefore the dexedrine idea appeals.

Unfortunately, I 'fessed to my pdoc that I had a bit of a meth jones in my younger years and he is very loath to prescribe amphetamines. I also wonder if a stimulant is the best thing for me given my history with panic disorder and anxiety. Well, I need more exercise and that's that. I may need to cattle prod myself into it and whip myself into a frenzy given all I'm wanting to eat, but it would be just about the best thing I could do for myself. - Barbara
