Smile Re: ??? Questions ???

It took me over 40 years just to be properly diagnosed! I have never taken the meds. that you are on but my meds ( Depakote, Etrafon & Paxil) have caused me to gain over 60 pounds. But they keep me really stable most of the time & I guess it's a trade-off. I'm just now accepting that i'm no longer thin & trying to motivate myself to lose before my sons' wedding next September. I've had the hardest time accepting being "fat" because I was always thin. Now I just have to do something about it & getting motivated is one of my major issues. Sometimes it really does take awhile for your pdoc to get the combination right. Hang in there & it'll happen.
