As I've written on these boards quite a few times, I am a survivor of the attacks on WTC on 9/11. It's been a LONG road to recovery for me via therapy and paxil (for the post traumatic stress syndrom) anyway, I am happy to say that my doctor has weened me off the paxil, but much to my dismay I have gained 25 lbs since Sept. 11th. Some due to paxil, but I'm sure mostly do to the stress, etc.... Anyway my doctor has perscribed Xenical to help me lose the unwanted poundage. Is anyone taking this? Will it really help me speed up the weight loss? I guess I didn't realize how out of control the weight gain became, etc. because of all the other things I was dealing with. Does anyone have any success stories regarding this drug? I just want to lose this 25 pounds and be done with it. I'm sick of taking medication. HOw long will it take to lose 25 pounds?? HELP!! I need some advice!
