Yes, it is totally increasing my appetite. I'm not actually hungry, but it's more that all self control mechanisms are suppressed so I'm eating huge portions. My doctor says Effexor is known for the opposite effect, but she also insists that there is no sexual side effect with it, and it's right in the package insert that there is a sexual side effect.

What is tomamax?

> thanks, all. Angel, I know exactly what you mean. I'm sick of feeling down (since my son was born 2 and 1/2 years ago!) I'm starting to think that's it's all drug company hype with the antidepressants. I feel slightly more stable, but not enough of an improvement to justify the side effects (zero sex drive and eating like a pig).
