A few days ago I changed 9mg of Abilify to 2.5mg of Risperidon.
I was on Abilify for over 5 years.
While being on Abilify, I gained over 20kg, have lost 6kg with a considerable effort.
When I started taking Abilify my appetite skyrocketed and began to eat 5 big meals everyday but over time it decreased to 7-8 times of binge-eating a month with 3 decent meals a day.
But after I stopped taking Abilify, my appetite becomes quite normal, and I don’t drink too much water anymore. I don’t even feel like eating snacks at 3pm. I’ve already lost 2 kg for the past few days.
I can’t help but expect that this will lead to weight loss.
I’ve always suspected that Abilify was the culprit of my weight gain, but my doctor said no.
So I kept wondering why I gained so much weight for such a short period of time.
We’ll see how my weight will change…
