Have some supplements like multivitamins supplements and eat healthy foods. But according to me, being slim is god's gift.

That's a vague question because it all depends. Some medications react differently with each person. Unfortunately the medicines that may make you fat is due to the emotional or hormonal effect. I'm personally speaking from experience -- I've taken a different brand of contraceptive pills and it did cause weight gain & I was told it was because it somehow affected my appetite?! I eventually opted to lower dosage of meds, and I returned to my normal, average weight.

I guess you have to just test and find out -- be safe though.

I have ordered 2 times from this website PILLSMEDSHOP. COM . I called yesterday the customer care and asked for a discount as i was about to order twice the regular amount.

I've been on Effexor from only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.
