eating habits changing after prozac

hello...i started prozac about a month ago and have had a completely unexpected reaction--my eating habits have changed. I don't feel like I eat for emotional reasons as much anymore. It's kind of amazing. I was always afraid of going on prozac because I'd heard people gain weight. I have had a different reaction. Has anybody else experienced this?

I'm not sure exactly... My best friend went on an anti-anxiety medicine that's not all that different from Prozac, but I can't remember the name right away, and she lost a TON of weight! She looked anorexic! But now she's back to looking healthy (but still very thin). I don't know if it was from a change in eating habits, though, or if she just stopped eating all together because she wanted to be thin. I'm really not sure...

You know, it's funny. I had the same reaction. I feel so much better since being on anti-depressants.

i am on prozac and so is my mothers, and it defineately curbs our appeptite (sp). i am naturallly thin to begin with and i am never hungry anymore. my mom lost all of her baby wt after her third child from prozac. i was on it last year, and just recently went on back, actually less than 2 weeks ago to help me thru a tough time and i can already tell the difference.
