    I started taking Lofepramine only 4 days ago. although I do feel a wee bit happier, like you they are affecting my appetite. I can go for a full day without eating & it will never bother me. I am never hungry anymore, I thought it was just me but obviously not. Good luck

    ive just been put on these today. took one maybe an hour ago. since i was 14 i started therapy. after 4 years, 9 reuptake inhibitors, 3 antipsychotics and valium(diazepam) and mogadon(nitrazepam) on several occasions(im on 50mg diazepam a day now too)...i'd say if you feel sick get your quack to give you domperidone 5/10mg and **** some **** **** to stimulate your appetite, i GUARANTEE you will be hungry and put on weight. or you could follow the system and get mirtazapine(SSNRI) which can stimulate appetite.

    but im 18 now and now im bipolar.

    went to the docs to get free pills for the weekend and now im bi polar.

    ive been reading up on peoples experiences with lofepramine, and a lot of people have said it makes it harder to sleep..which is confusing because the label says it may have sedating effects.

    when i first started taking it (just over a month ago) it made me really sleepy but after a few days, i was finding it impossible to sleep. so now i take 2 in the morning instead of at night. if you do that tho, make sure you eat first cos otherwise u feel sick as hell!

    hang in there, it will get better soon..remember it takes a while for your body to get used to it/for it to kick in.
