First off, hello all! I'm new to this site, as well as new to the world of severe anxiety. I thought it would help to discuss with other people that may understand better, and also try to help other people too.
On to my current issue. I began taking 20mg fluoxetine pills almost 5 months ago. Before taking the medication, I ate a very scheduled diet. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, maybe one snack. I was very meticulous about what I would consume, and always tried to stay healthy. Now, I feel like I can't eat enough food! I've gained a few pounds since starting my treatment, and after a little research I believe that food tasting amazing plus craving sugar and carbs are to blame. I don't believe it to be my metabolism slowing down and I'm still an active person.
My question is, what can I do to stop these cravings? Is there anything that has worked for anybody? It's almost as if my will power has disappeared! My symptoms feel better, so I don't want to stop taking the medication. Thanks in advance!
