Hey red,

Have you tried Lamictal yet? It's supposed to be weight neutral.

I was thinking of trying that. I used to be on it and it worked for about a year.
Thanks Serafena...I'll mention it to pdoc.

Just saw the pdoc...he upped my abilify and added klonopin...still on wellbutrin

We'll see how this goes! I'm hopeful as always in the beginning of a med change.

p.s. I'm losing weight since I switched from Cymbalta to Wellbutrin.

Cymbalta was the fatty culprit not Abilify.

I think...

Hi Red Lightening,

Wish I would have read this post earlier.  I see why your doc added the klonopin now.  Maybe it just needs time to kick in. 

I'm on Trileptal with Wellbutrin. 

Good Luck! blush
