Default Re: Medically Induced Weight Gain

Keep your psychiatrist posted on how your weight is changing. Ask about whether you need a blood test to check either your lipids or your sugar.

Some meds are better for people who want to keep their weight down. I went from Zyprexa to Depakote and I lost weight but that won't happen for everyone. It's a balancing act because the drug should help your psych issues, keep your weight stable and be otherwise safe for you.
