In brief: Eat Breakfast

Eat a big breakfast before you take your medication.
Make sure to eat something at lunch even if you are not hungry. Do the same for supper. Make sure you have nutrition dense food, and not 'junk food'. Maybe your doctor could lower your dose of medication or just lower the dose on the weekend. Appetite usually gets better the longer you take the medication. May not change appetite but helps.
