Has anyone had any luck with losing weight while taking Marplan? I'm having a tough time getting the weight off.
Any info would be appreciated.
Marplan is an MAOI medication. There are various food restrictions on any MAOI. Fermented foods like cheese, olives, pickles, wine, and such cannot be eaten. You can look up restrictions above.
This is an alternative medication for depression. It is not a weight loss medication. However, many people with weight issues are depressed and reducing depression makes it easier to find the reason for the eating. Be sure you are working with a therapist. Without that you will not be able to make the changes you want.
I suggest you do some reading bout this med and be sure you can commit to the various restrictions. The side effects are not good if you decide to ignore the foods and other items. However, being committed may well give you what you need. Good luck to you.
