lamictal, trileptal, wellbutrin.

Weight gain is common with most psych meds. I think most psych meds are designed to mellow people out and/or tranquilize people. Not surprisingly...WEIGHT GAIN!

Plus, we're just "mental patients," right? Who cares if we're fat?

I hear clozapine is dreadful. I read a study that seemed to show that high doses of olanzapine can be as effective as clozapine w/o the same side effects such as, you know, DEATH.

I take Abilify. I've gained a lot of weight. I'm more than a little upset, because Abilify is touted as the cleanest thing ever. Everybody and their mama has a prescription. Ridiculous.

Anyway, yeah...those are the only meds I can think of. Maybe Straterra?
