Re: Weight Loss or Gain with Abilify?
Weight gain is a rare side effect of Abilify. It is a weight neutral drug. Weight neutral means it can go either way; weight gain or weight loss. Mostly, this drug will cause weight loss verses weight gain in most people and has in a lot of studies.
However, there are others, including myself, who I am aware of that have encountered weight gain on this med. That is a rare occurance though according to my pdoc, MD, and other medical professionals.
As a person who has done well with this med, I recommend that you give the Abilify a try. Each med will effect every person differently-positively or negatively. Give it a try and see how it goes. You will know within about 3 weeks if it works for you as that is the time amount it take for it to begin to work in balance. By then, you will also notice if you are going to gain any weight or lose weight on the Abilify. Seriously.
Good luck to you!
a loving heart is the truest wisdom
