Thank you for this feedback. The problem with any psychotropic medication (anxiolytics and/or antidepressants) is that they can stimulate your appetite via the appetite centres in the brain. The control of appetite is a very complex neurological and chemical process and we don't have all the answers yet. I would not recommend any of the appetite suppressants as they all have negative side-effects and interfere with the chemical balance in the brain which could affect your current treatment. Your options are, therefore, diet and exercise. My honest opinion is that Weighless or Weight Watchers are the best option (and please note that I do not work for Weighless) because they use a balanced diet approach and give you moral support via the regular meetings. Remember to combine the diet with regular exercise as this gives the best slimming results and produces endorphins in the body that improve your mood and counteract depression.
