My doc wants me to try two weeks of .5mg of rexulti. I've lost a lot of weight and I want to continue and I noticed a side effect of the med is weight gain. How many people have had this? I'm very nervous to try this when I've worked my butt off to lose weight.
I have been taking Wellbutrin XL for several years with a good response, but my depression has become debilitating and treatment resistant over the last year and a half. I started taking .5mg of Rexulti as an add on to the Wellbutrin XL and have not gained any weight. I am more hungry than usual certain days, but I grab a fruit or something "healthier" as a snack. I think it depends on the person and other medications you are taking, but I'm not a medical professional. Also, the Rexulti has helped my depression so much that I am out moving around a LOT more and exercising too.
