I was recently changed from taking escitalopran to fluoxetine, the reason for this was that I gained so much weight which in turn made me feel even worse about myself. Can anyone tell me will this new tablet diminish my appetite in order to lose weight, I eat generally healthy. Any advise would be appreciated.
