> Hi Marfaith and Lynda,
> I am so glad to know that both of you also seem to have experienced the weight in the middle. Like you it is also unlike me to gain weight, and I have always had a flat stomach, the few times I have gained weight it was on my thighs/hips, but I have never seen anything like this. I am also torn, like you Lynda, it has turned my life around, and I have also been on the whole list of available drugs. But I am getting depressed about the fat, particularly with summer coming, so I am not sure what I can do. I am so thin normally that I would not really have minded a bit of weight on my thighs/hips but it just looks ugly and unbecoming where it has accumulated with love handles and a belly roll on an otherwise quite fit body. I look about three months pregnant after a meal.

I know how you feel. It didn't hurt me to put some weight on, but 32 lbs was a bit much. I switched to Lexapro. It has been about five weeks and I will have to say that it has helped with my depression. At first it made me more anxious, but when needed I take Xanax. The Remeron was great, because I slept so deep, I miss that. I think it not only slowed down my metabolism, but it also made me constantly hungry. I have heard that when you increase the mg. the side effects are less. Have you heard that? Marfaith
