Anything in your small intestine is going to inhibit X to a certain degree. So obviously, the longer you can make yourself fast without adversely affecting your nutrition, the better. When I was on it, I would allow small snacks 2 hours before. A small meal 4 hours before. If I was really planning to pig out, I would work in a 6 hour delay.

I really struggled to eat the first month on Xyrem. It has eased up so that I can now eat, but I still don't eat very much on it. And for me I don't seem to really get hungry until just about the time I need to stop eating. However, I don't seem to lose weight regardless of what changes I make so for me there hasn't really been weight loss associated with eating less.

I have a terrible time trying to get in enough food while taking Xyrem... when I went on a X break (for 2 months) I finally felt hunger again, it was great. Now that I am back on X its back to having to force feed myself... and like Jennel I get hungry around the time I need to stop eating.
I try to eat something right before the 2 hour mark... just not anything heavy.
