I know that it’s typically prescribed first because of the minimum side effects compared to other classes of APs but I’m really questioning this constant intense hunger side effect. I’m starving constantly and even after I eat a big meal the satiety wears off pretty quickly, within an hour or two it seems. If I listened to my belly right now I’d probably gain tons of weight on this med from eating constant meals.
There are side effects I can and can’t tolerate. Being constantly hungry is one I don’t know if I will be able to tolerate much longer. Anyone have any good med suggestions that didn’t give them constant starvation? If it makes you sleepy that’s great too because I’m looking for a replacement for my benzo at night.
