does anyone have a child on Abilify and Lithium? My child is in the hospital now and they have started him on Lithium I would not consent for the Abilify because it caused severe weight gain. Even though he takes Vyvanse for his ADHD that med controlled his appetite. He was on Abilify for 4 months and the last 3 I had to buy him new pants went from a slim to xl so I am not happy about
that and the doc's just keep saying that is something that happens with those kinds of meds. Duh!! But they can't give him anything to counter act it. Nope! My son has tried so many meds,Risperdal, Depakote, Depakote XR, Can't remember the others.
Let me know if any other ideas.
