A change in other meds made other huge changes

I've got some endocrine issues and my parathyroid hormone jumped up higher during August ,resulting in a flare of depression which had been controlled previously.

The antidepressant (paroxetine, aka Paxil) was increased, which took care of the depression flare.

Surprisingly, though, it shut off that [email protected]#$%^ appetite and constant drive to eat. I've been able to ignore being hungry with no problem; that never was possible before. There used to be this nagging 'eat now' 2 year old bugging me non-stop to eat, distracting me from being able to focus on other things, and its gone.

I've lost roughly 15 pounds since August and I haven't had to fight for it tooth and nail. I am absolutely stunned.

Your mileage may vary, of course.
