When I was on Seroquel and Prozac… I was starting to get up there in the weight.

Then the Seroquel got cut back and the Latuda got added… and the Prozac dropped for Xanax… and the weight started to come back off…

Then the metformin got added… and the weight has been much easier to keep off…

Plus… since I was feeling more with it and had more energy… I took up swimming again…and I have a pretty physical job… so that also helped the weight come off.

How much metformin u take and when?

I’m on 500 mg and I take it in the morning with my other meds.

So i guess metformin took a while to work ? Like months ?

It helped keep the sugar levels in my blood stable and then helped me drop the blood sugar level…

I didn’t actually know the Metformin was good for weight loss… I was put on it because the Seroquel was messing with my blood sugar… and I didn’t want to end up with diabetes.

But yes… it took a while to get back to the thin self I was previously… but again… swimming and having a manual job… digging… planting… landscaping… that also took off the weight.

Don’t give up hope… meds do take a while to kick in. Good luck

I take topomax 200mg. At first it just maintained my weight, I didn’t gain any more. But when I added exercise I started dropping like 1-2lbs a week. Had no appetite at all, lost all taste for food. Now I’m down 20lbs and sort of plateaued. But then again, I stopped exercising regularly. Funny that.

Topamax but I think I became extremely psychotic on it. I lost 60 lbs.

I wanna bump this thread if possible. I wanna find out more about these medicines

I’ve lost about 10 lbs on topamax over 2 or 3 months months when I was staying the same then slowly gaining the last 4 or 5 years.

Wellbutrin (bupropion) helped me lose weight. Stimulants like adderall and ritalin can help too obviously, but with lots of horrible side effects.

im trying atomoextine for weight loss, if i get any results ill post it. i heard metformin caused diarhea in most people

Sorry i think you guys are talking about different medicines

Atomoxetine didn’t help me lose weight
So I’m going to try topamax tomorrow
