Goodbye Abilify

Saturday, June 08, 2013

It's been I think three or four days since I stopped taking the abilify. I lost 4 lbs overnight, and then 1 lb today so 5 lbs. It was definitely contributing to my weight gain. My appetite has decreased and so far that's the only withdrawal symptom I'm having. I'm still taking the celexa and deplin which have no effect on weight. I see a new dr on tues and I'm going to hammer in the point that I refuse to take drugs that make you gain weight.

Seeing 200 lbs at the start of the week was a horrific thing. I've never been so heavy in all my life. I have 65 lbs to lose. Well, 60 now. I'll never let the scale get that high again. I'm absolutely mortified.

    Good work! Sounds like you are on the right track. It's hard to stand up to doctors sometimes but it's important to look out for your own health too. Keep going! emoticon
