Any weight gain in this drug? Does this drug help you sleep at night? Im looking for a drug that will improve my mood as well.
I know I don’t experience the classic side effect of lamictal but I will tell you how it’s effected me. I get so sleepy and groggy so I can only take it at night, I’m sensitive to medications that may cause sleepiness. I also gained a ton of weight, I legit blew up and am still fat. But I know “it is weight neutral” and “it causes weight loss or no weight change” but that’s not how it effects everyone but that’s how it effects most people. I don’t get the classic side effects.

I, too, have gained weight with Abilify. I am also on Lamictal which also has weight gain as a side?
