    becuase we want to eat more, or if we don't even eat more than normal, does it still make us gain, even if we don't eat more??

    Thanks

    Alot of people get increased appetite, but I think many gain without eating more. I took a similar SSRI a while ago, and I gained 30 pounds in 2 months without any significant increase in foods.

    It changes your body's "target"(the body's own view of where you should be weightwise) weight for good, so many can't rid that weight no matter what. I have not gotten rid of mine, only 5, and activity doesn't change it, nor does healthier eating. At least for me, but I've heard quite a few say the same thing.
