Re: Are there any bi_polar meds

Good luck. Everyone reacts differently of course, but most meds cause weight gain. I personally did not gain weight on geodon (which is why I was put on on it), but that med didn't work well in other aspects(which is why I had to drop it). It's a balancing act. What would you prefer? Good mental health or a steady weight?
