Hi all, since have been on elvanse 70mg for 9 months now, it has helped me on a day to day basis immensely, with only one draw back........appetite or rather, lack of it. I wake around 8:30 and immediately take my tablet, I then go to work until 6pm (I'm. An engineer so constantly on the go, I then get home, put my daughter to bed, maybe do some odd jobs around house, have a shower etc but my appetite doesn't really appear untill 10pm when the effects of my tablet have worn off. It has worked wonders in the fact that I need to loose a couple of stone (I have lost 2.5) but over the last few weeks I have started feeling a bit weak and can't help wondering what this lack of food is doing to me! Is there any kind of meal replacement/ supplements that can be taken on a daily basis to try and get some goodness in to me?
I've only been on elvance for two weeks, so not an expert by any means, but I find that if I eat breakfast (I was advised to have a muesli type breakfast, not a fatty fry up) then take it, my appetite is fairly normal all day. In fact, my appetite hasn't reduced at all as I've been having little snacks in between as well!!
