I had to switch to Nardil from Marplan for 2yrs due to the shortage and was petrified about weight gain. I pretty much insisted that my doc let me trial metformin while on Nardil. In the 2yrs I was on both it kept it more or less weight neutral. I started at 216 and ended at 226ish. That's w/o being very active and not sticking to any sorta of diet (although I did have weight on my mind when deciding whether or not to eat).

Metformin has lots of benefits. If you can convince your doctor to let you get on it Id highly recommend it. There are a number of studies on about preventing AP weight gain from the worst offenders (Zyprexa etc).

Topamax is another potential that I'm sure you're aware of. Side effects are difficult, it can make you worse moodwise, and it doesn't always work for weight loss after the first trial.

Other than those 2 though I honestly don't know if there are options. Perhaps Contrave which is an fda approved wt loss med containing low dose Naltrexone & Wellbutrin. reviews for that aren't very good though.

Nice to see a post from you.
