I've been prescribed this at 20mg a day but it mentions weight gain a lot on google ? I'm worried gaining weight will cause my pnd to become worse? I can't really afford to gain any more as I'm quite big as it is. Anyone else on this medication ? What experience do you have with it?

I didn't gain weight whilst on it but everyone's different.

Weight gain is the least of your worries, get your mood sorted and then address your weight if it becomes a problem

Most important thing is your mood

I am aware if this but I'm am a Size 18 I do not want to make my health worse by putting on 2 stone further. Also the side effects say it's very addictive , this also scares me

I didn't put weight on; in fact I even lost weight because I became more active. It did wonders for me and it wasn't a problem when I came off it. I think I was taking it for 18 months and didn't have any withdrawal symptoms. The doctor decreased the dose gradually.

Thank you, this is so confusing as heard lots of different things quite a lot of bad too. Di you take it at night or morning ? I took it at lunchtime and wanted to sleep all day :/
