1. What anxiety/panic/related medication(s) are you currently taking?
I take Lamictal (as mood stabilizer); Lexapro; Wellbutrin, and Deplin.  I was on Depakote in addition but stopped that. I take Zyprexa as needed for anxiety.
 
2. Do you experience any weight gain/weight loss with this medicine?
I was so hungry with Depakote that I ate four ice cream sandwiches at once and once ate a dry hot dog bun.  If I took Zyprexa every day I'd experience the same type of hunger.  I have gained weight.  I had recently lost 20 lbs and gained that all back plus 4 lbs.  In the past I was on Paxil and gained 50 lbs on that.
 
3. Any known side effects when taken with supplements like magnesium, calcium, vitamin B, etc?
No.
 
4. How long have you been on this medication?
I have been on psychotropic meds for a long time but this particular combination only since March.
 
5. Anything else you'd like to say?

1. Clonazepam .5 mgs twice a day.
2. At first I lost weight because I finally felt like resuming my life. Now I've made progress enough to eat like I want and have gained some. But that's lifestyle.
3. None known. I take a multivitamin when I remember to.
4. It will be two years early this coming March.
5. I'm lucky to have found something that works for me. It is not the whole answer; it's more like a key that unlocks the door. I still have to open that door and walk through it everyday. Honestly I could probably stand to increase my dose or take something in addition to it, but I would rather not. As long as I remain functional and feel good most of the time, I'm happy.

Good luck to you.
