Hello, i've been on Abilify for a year now and my concern with any of my meds is weight gain. My Psychiatrist said that Abilify is not known for weight gain. i have actually lost weight since being on it. Tho i am cutting out junk in my diet, abilify is certainly not making me gain weight. i take 30 mg along with Lamictal and have not gained weight with either. Now i am on a lot of additional meds but my psych makes sure that their non weight gaining as possible. That is why she hasn't tried Lithium or Depakote.
Hope this helps.
