The effect depends on the person and the dose. You are already having the side effects like weight loss. You can regain your weight if you reduce taking the drug. You may get sudden effects of the drug which may be XXXXXXX That is the reason I would advise you to slow down on the drug.

It may take months to years for those effects. we can not fix an exact time for the effects to appear. They may appear as short term or long term effects

Hope this answers your query.
