Thanks to my psychiatric meds I’ve gained about thirty pounds this year. I feel so hungry all of the time and I never seem to feel full. The worst has been my binges on sweets. I know I have to take my psych meds but I hate this side effect. I battle with depression and poor body image and this weight gain certainly isn’t helping things. I hate myself right now.
I’ve got some motivation to lose weight though. I am going to BlogHer’13 at the end of July and I want to look my best. So I have a little less than two months. I am doing well not eating sweets but I am still battling the feeling to keep nibbling throughout the day. Nights are the worst though, I just feel SO hungry.
Between weight gain and sexual side effects, a lot of people chose not to go on these much needed drugs. I know I MUST be on pysch drugs but I could sure do without these side effects.
Have you gained weight on psychiatric medications? Has weight gain made you go off your drugs?
