    I’ve been on 60mg since November 2017. First 2 months my appetite totally disappeared and I was always exhausted, both are listed as a potential side effect. Psychiatrist said once my body adjusts that side effects would go. 

    They did, appetite is normal now but I have not put on any weight, I’ve actually lost 10lbs since starting these but it could be because my last medication made me put on weight.

    Think it varies depending on the person. 

    Sorry I know that’s not much help
