Hello @greenpea , you are so wise and kind Smiley Happy


Hi @Annie_7 , Welcome to the forums.  I hope some people can contrbute to this.  My own weight gain has been rapid over the last 12-14 months now.  I am slowly being weened off my meds, but, its taking forever and i fear its going to take me years to recover and feel like I did before all this happened to Me.  If ever.  Part of the issue for Me is my age as I'm no spring chicken.  I worry about how long my brain and body willl take to expel everything I've been forced to put in.

The only thing I can suggest that I've heard is looking at alternative medications, but, even with that I think it's going to take a lot of hard work and diligence on your part.  I've got advice from pshychologist and dietician and theres no easy or quick fixes.  Diet and exercise is critical, but, even with doing that right, it feels like a big uphill battle to make an impact.


I hope that you can and are able to have a baby.  As they say, where theres a will theres a way.  Wishing you all the best Smiley Happy
