I'm on a very low dose of abilify and have gained 20lbs in a short period of time. Prior to abilify I was on latuda and lost weight when I cut alot of sugar and fat from my diet alone. I am on the same diet and have gained the wieght back while being switched to abilify. I do not eat alot more than before and find it hard to believe the weight gain is cause of eating alone. My psych can give me a med to curb the eating, but I am unsure of doing this. Was hoping to exercise and lose the weight that way cause I have a strong suspicion the med affects your metabolism inspite of what the pharmacist says. My question is two fold, do you think I should take the med to curb eating and has anyone else been able to successfully lose the weight while on abilify?
