OK, I'm back!! LOL Yes, when my Dr put me on them to help with my IBS...the BIGGEST concern was weight gain... and I did fight it... at the time I was really STARVING myself... like 1100-1200 calories per day...I did not know any better then. So, I was losing... but not the right way. Soon after I started taking them I noticed the sexual side effects and the feeling of "no emotions" it was too strange for me and asked to be taken off of them....as I reduced I started getting "feelings back" in more ways then one!! LOL Anyway.... due to the diet & exercise I was feeling so good and upbeat all the time that my Dr did not try to put me on another kind at all....since my IBS symptoms seem to have decreased by the change in my diet & exercise.

So, YES.... try to decrease your calories...maybe 300-400 to start and see if that helps ya.... and from what I've been reading A LOT as of late.... cut the sugar where ever you can too.

Good luck sweetie...it will happen...we just gotta keep helping you to tweak things...
