    What dose are you on? I think you can take from the experiences of many people on this forum that 6 weeks is very early days x

      You are going to be ok! 20mg is a good dose but you need to give it more time to settle. I have lost two stone since November, most do lose there appetite in the beginning but it will come back x

    it's early and normal to lose wait on this meds

    I lost 45ounds on the meds u be okay

    I also believe that the people on here help more then the Dr

    they been thought it or still are going though it

    I was told when ur hunger comes back it's a good sign of showing the meds are working

    Also anxiety makes everything worse and scary so are the side effects

    I'm on the beginning of week 12 and still have early morning side effects of nausea headaches anxiety and some crying but my evenings are better now

    so u know the meds are working weekly and u will see chances for the better

    but it takes time like 3 month for some even longer or less

    hope I could help u a bit that's what we hear for
