> OK, so I'm a little over 10 weeks on 60mg of Nardil, and most my side effects have finally subsided. All that's left is minor shakiness (particularly in the legs when going down stairs) and maybe some constipation (don't want to stop taking the stool softener to find out--not keen on giving myself another enema).

If you pinch my belly there's no fat, but yet I still have a firm pot belly. Anyone know what causes this and if there's anything I can do to get rid of it? Will it go away with continued treatment? I have always been skinny and this belly is really annoying me.

Nick,

As guys the first place to deposit fat and the last place to lose it is the gut. I have been overweight practically 100% of the time I've taken antidepressants (about 20 yrs). I've only been able to lose some on certain activating drugs which always eventually become intolerable for me. The drugs make it VERY, VERY difficult for some to lose weight and the belly is the hardest part. About 15 years ago I decided I wasn't going to let these drugs control my weight and resolved to run every day no matter what until all the weight came off. Besides being too tired to run enough for results after a period, I hurt my knees and had to stop.

Bob
