Eating Disorder & Anti depressants
I have a serious eating disorder - obesity, I've been put on Efexor, Fluoxitine and back onto Efexor but I find that my appetite is out of control, I eat myself sick. It's as if I only realize what I've eaten afterward when I feel uncomfortible. I don't have depression, I suffer from axiety and I can't feel when I've eaten enough, that "message" in my brain is not working. Please advice.

I cannot imagine why so many doctors seem to be obsessed with Efexor, which has no major demonstrated advantage over any other antidepressant. But no drug will solve your problem --- you need to see a coog Cognitive-behaviour Therapy / CBT counsellor
