Thus causing you not to watch your weight and eat and eat and eat dont let this medicine do this though you are the one in control so just be sure you watch your weight when on this medication.

My psychiatrist told me that ANY type of sedative has the possibility of weight gain :( If you are at a reasonable dose (you could get by at a lower dose for a couple of days or weeks), you may want to ask your doctor if he or she can lower the dosage until you get used to the effects, making you more likely to control hunger when the dose goes back up.
