I have been dieting for 3 weeks. Ihave managed to lose about 6 lbs but recently I don't appeared to have lost much since to lost much weight recenltly. My doctor naturally worried me by saying  that I was near obese. I would welcome any comments. I have looked on patient.info and most of the discussion seem to be about the problems cncerned putting on weight, There is a connection but it is not the same.

      It was my GP who pointed to my weight recently and saying that I was almost clinically obese.

      Ithink that if you read what t says about mirt it says that for the reason that if you don't watch you eat you will put on wieght. Therefore that is agood reason to be keeping to a sensible diet to maintain a desirable weight rather than putting on weight. It makes you sleepy, maybe it makes you put on weight.

      But quetiapine makes you like a zombie, lithium affects your kidney function, Prozac affects your libido. So compared with those I would rather be on mirt. You pays your money and takes your choice IMHO.
