    Hi, how are you getting on with the Lofepramine? There's nothing worse than that 'drunk, spaced-out feeling', I got that in a huge way with Fluoxetine, it was awful. 

    I was on Lofepramine for a while about a year ago and asked to stop it as I believed it was making me gain weight. Just wondering if you have noticed weight gain as a side effect as otherwise it seemed to be working OK for me and I wish I had not given up so quickly. Please let me know how you're finding it. 

    I'm not sure it was the Lofepramine causing the weight gain at the time after all but I guess I'd rather be happy and fat than miserable and skinny!
