hey sheila. Thanks for keeping us all posted.

I know 0 about latuda. I don't think all that salivation could be a good thing, so...maybe just ditch it?

Abilify does...or can...cause weight gain. It has for me. I did read some small studies where they used high potency antioxidants, such as alpha lipoic acid, to prevent zyprexa weight gain. Keep in mind: zyprexa is notorious for causing terrible weight gain and metabolic problems.

The antioxidants helped. Someone here posted about a study in which they used a low dose (50mgs) of topomax to prevent zyprexa weight gain, and again: it worked.

So, I think there are ways you could prevent more weight gain from Abilify. When I took Adderall with Abilify, I didn't gain weight. Of course...that combo kinda felt...odd...but I didn't gain weight.

Some people use metformin for atypical-induced weight gain, to good effect. Maybe that's an option?

There's also the new Abilifies...Rexulti and Vrayrlar or whatever. I don't know how those are with weight gain, but they might be worth trying.

These days, I take a ton of wellbutrin (abilify wasn't enough for the depression), and that's stopped the weight gain and now I'm slowly dropping.

Thanks again for keeping us here posted and please keep on giving us updates. I'd kind of started to wonder where you'd gone off to.
