After signs of sharp overfatigue against the prolonged stress connected with overloads at work were found in Elizabeth Miroshina, the doctor observing it at that time registered a rate of antidepressants. He assured that the increased appetite can become the only side effect of a preparation.

Medicine very much helped Elizabeth. In several days after reception of a preparation she already felt inflow of forces and energy, with enthusiasm was engaged in work and the house. Only after three months she understood that she gains weight with an improbable speed. And in half a year Elizabeth added nearly 13 kg.

“I ate everything, - the girl tells, - and could not get it together in any way“.

Then Elizabeth addressed other psychiatrist. The doctor prescribed it the preparation eliminating feeling of hunger and which is well combined with antidepressants. But everything remained still. Excess weight became an additional reason for experiences and a depression. As a result the third doctor managed to break off this vicious circle, having replaced one preparation with more sparing means, and - having cancelled the second at all.

Yes, it was registered by the doctor, he thought over the medical plan for you.

But the individual reaction to this or that means you know better, than someone another“.

Some preparations cause drowsiness, slackness, other drugs strengthen production of “hunger hormone“ - and all your thoughts concentrate on desire to eat. The organism of each person differently reacts to action of medicines therefore in advance to define as far as you will recover during a course, it is almost impossible. Moreover, even those preparations at which such side effects were not revealed earlier can possess such ability.
