If someone has gained weight taking abilify, how long if at all will it take to start losing the weight once they have stopped using it?
You probably won't lose it without extra work, but you won't keep on gaining. I have decided to try & at least maintain only the 20 extra pounds I gained. I'll try to work it off slowly but I need the abilify more than being slim. I wish I had the metabolism I did when I was young. I never weighed over 107 until Boom! I turned 35 and suddenly I had breasts and then I finally leveled off around 135-145.and it the last few years it kept creeping up I'm 55 years old now and the abilify and thyroid problems have me at 180. But my husband would rather have me fat and happy than suicidal and miserable.and me too! I need the ablify because it works for me. Good luck, SharonH
I was without my Abilify for almost a month due to cost. Then found the savings card. Anyway, I sunk into one if worse depression. I lost 10 pounds. When I got back on the weight started to creep up and I was watching my snacks. I think I'll rather out up with a few pounds then what I went through. I say that but it means new clothes.
