Hi everyone,
I've been on  moodstabilisers, antidepressants and antipsychotics for a month and a half only. I look 3months pregrant and have added weight. My appetite is monstrous. Is this that normal when on these medications?

Hi, Unfortunately some meds do put weight on you.  If you are uncomfortable with it talk to your dr. and tell him you want to be on meds that do not have the weight gain side effect.  Good luck with which ever you do.

I put on weight with the meds I too. My appetite increased on my meds. Carbs are the worse craving for me. It seems to be the antipyschotics that do that.
