Day 3 -- After Straterra

Sometimes I wish I was doing only one drug at a time, but the ones that I am currently taking I've been taking for a long time. So it's pretty clear when something changes, it's because of the "new drug." However..... I did also just start taking buspirone, but that's because the psychiatrist thought that it might help my snoring and apnea.

I also have struggled with the weight. I've put on a LOT more than 50 pounds over about 12 years, starting with Prozac, then Zoloft. It seemed like the better I felt in my head, the less oomph I felt in my body! Frustrating. I do suspect the thyroid problem might be at the root of it, though. With Straterra, I'm finding my appetite to be really in control. I could stand to lose at least 100 pounds, though, probably more, so I don't think I'll be able to rely on just Straterra to help me with that. Also, I read something earlier today from WebMD, a report that said that people do tend to lose weight quickly at first, but that over the long haul, the loss isn't that significant. I guess we'll just have to wait and see!

Yes, I'm also interested in hearing from others using Straterra, in regards to motivation and appetite! As for today..... after my glowing report first thing this morning, I kind of conked out. The tiredness hit me pretty hard. If it wasn't a Saturday and I had things to do outside the house, I don't know if I would have felt as bad. But that couch was mighty inviting today and it got used! Then I was all groggy the various times I woke up and moved around during my extended "nap."
