Default Medications I'm experiance

Hey guys,

So I'm on a cocktail of differant medications, all of which are meant to make you fat. So far I have had NO weight gain side effects. I spoke to my doctor and he siad that they just make you more hungry, so really if you keep that in mind you should be fine.

I am so happy, I thought that I would wake up one day and be MASSIVE ! I have found thank god that that has not been the case at all.

It's hard sometimes, having all the issue though right, not only are we over weight, but we have mental health issues to boot.

I'm takiong back the control over my mind and body. Come with me

That's awesome! Congrats. When I was put on Depakote like 15 years ago no one warned me about weight gain. I do believe it heavily contributed to my extreme weight gain in college. It may have been due to appetite, but I didn't understand the warning signs.

So, glad to hear it. If you can be on meds that are good for you, make you feel better, and don't make you gain weight then that's fantastic. Hope it continues that way.
