Bipolar II here. Was on lithium and varying doses of seroquel for a while. I'm not sure if they contributed to my weight gain or not because I was already gaining at a pretty steady pace when I went on them.

Been off all meds for a bit more than a year now. Things get a little bit dicey sometimes, but I've generally been much happier off the meds than I was on (no more twitching, no more constant tiredness, no more zombification). I'm not suggesting anyone do this, especially without the guidance of a psychiatrist. Just saying where I'm at right now.

Anyway, i'm glad there are other bipolar chicks on here.
Losing again after maintaining for more than four years (mostly in the 135-140 range).
