Im so depressed an weight gain makes it worse an side effects of those meds made me miserable. PLEASE HELP ME!! Im lost an at my wits end.i cant cope at work either. :"(
Hi, yasho! I've been lucky with antidepressants as far as weight gain, but Wellbutrin is the most weight neutral; in fact, a few people lose weight.
The antipsychotics are even more notorious ~ Abilify and Geodon (especially helpful for depression) are thought to be the most weight neutral for most people.
The only *mood stabilizer* is lithium which is usually only used in Bipolar disorder, but anticonvulsants like Lamictal and Topamax can be helpful.
Believe me, I know how you feel! Not only was I a black, immobile lump, I became grossly fat. Oh yeah, THAT helps your depression! Hang in there and keep working with your doctor. Almost everyone has to go through the old *trial and error* but it's worth it! I'm happy, healthy... and thin!!
Good luck, WCV
