An SSRI may help you depending on what you have but it might not be the best treatment for the sleepiness and over eating. If anything it most likely will cause you to be sleepy and gain weight. Do you have a neurologist that specializes in sleep medicine? Have them do a sleep study. I did this and found out that I was narcoleptic! My first thought was what the h*ll but turns out these symptoms can start in your late twenties.

I've had about 5 Sleep Studies thus far. The first two were years ago and were inconclusive. I went into REM on my naps, but not enough to be considered Narcolepsy. Years later I had more sleep studies and was diagnosed with Mild Sleep Apea. I've been on the CPAP for about 6 months and all it does it put marks on my face - no help in symptoms. I've also been on stimulants and anti-narcoleptic drugs but they were unpredictable and made me more tired a lot of times.
