Hi everyone. I'm a 31 year old female and am desperately trying to determine which of the drugs I'm on has made me gain 35 pounds over 2 years that I can't seem to shake. I'm on: 10 mg of Lexapro. 7.5 mg of Abilify (because the Lexapro by itself made me apathetic and suicidal) and also Portia birth control. I recognize that my metabolism is slowing as I get older and I really ought not to eat things such as Burger King breakfast platters, but I feel one or more of these drugs is contributing to my fatness. Does anyone have experiences they'd like to share? Did you lose weight after quitting these drugs? I'm looking to quit the Abilify and Lexapro cold turkey within a week or so. I tried to do that before and got brain zaps, dizziness, and weepiness, but I'm willing to go through it again. I've had enough of the non-existent libido coupled with the lack of emotion, good or bad. I don't want to go through the rest of my life on mute. I don't feel that Lexapro has done anything for my depression except to make me less emotional, and thereby less sad. And I can't say it's done anything for my anxiety. I have trichotillomania (hair-pulling disorder) and mild OCD that Lexapro has done nothing for. Please also let me know if you suffer from that and what you've done that works (that's not an antidepressant or a benzo! I don't want to be dependent any longer).
