i'd guess there is almost certainly something with appetite, but a good chance of something else too.

i thought i posted something about this relatively recently, but i can't find it.

oh i found it. just a bunch of jumbled thoughts though.

THere might be something about the lowered liver function, plus less activation of sympathetic nervous system, compared to parnate. Also, there is conflicting evidence, but parnate seems better at downregulating 5t2 receptors, though i'd guess phenelzine is better at activating them. that would affect appetite.

I kind of hate how there is so little evidence on the mechanisms of old drugs.

also keep in might short term weigh fluctuation can be related to salt/glucose and water.
