That's my fear... the weight gain. A lot of people don't understand that. How could I turn down lithium if it would help SO much, for such a superficial reason. But my point of view is that - I've dealt with depression and various weight issues (eating disorders) along with my bipolar for years. I know myself and if I gained weight it would spiral me into a depression and then a obsessive need to lose it, which might be impossible on the medication. I'm currently taking 200mg Lamictal and have just added 10mg Abilify today. Both are said to NOT have those side effects. I know those aren't the medications you're discussing, but the weight issue is something I think a lot of people medicated for bipolar deal with no matter what the treatment. It stinks... sorry about your jeans. I have a couple of favorite pairs too.
