Sotty, Susan, but this is beginning to worry me. Why is your prescribing psychiatrist invisible and not being actively involved in solving the issues that trouble you ? That is her absolute professional duty. It is NOT aceptable for any doc to prescribe a drug without fully explaining it and closely monitoring its effects and impact, and without BEING available to the patient to discuss ongoing concerns. It is not good enough for her to be unavailable. Maybe you should consider seeing a new psychiatrist who will be more caring and available, for a second opinion.
There are absolutely NO "natural remedies" for any psychiatric disorder. This drug CAN cause uncomfortable side-effects in some people, but it is NOT a "poison" and anyone telling you that doesn't know what they are talking about and is busy grinding their own axes. Loss of appetite is a possible side-effect here.
If this particular drug was going to suit you and be really helpful, this should probably have been obvious by now, so your new shrink would probably suggest a gradual, slow withdrawal; of this drug, amd a discussion of what to replace it with. Maybe a purely talking alternative, such as CBT, as I must have mentioned before, would be wise to try.
