  Am curious.....

   How many overweight persons eat that much, due to depression?

   Isn't depression directly related to reduction of serotonin?

   Isn't it a well known fact, stress reduces serotonin?

   Why would a serotonin reduction drug be given to a stressed out,

 depressed person, that probably eats due to depression?

  What are the stats, FDA?, on obesity and depression? How many 
overweight persons suffer depression?
                                                        very curious,

 p.s. is it smart to give them serotonin reducers?
