Medication and weight gain

20 Dec

When I first went on quetiapine, I got to the highest weight I had ever been in my life, slowly I lost the weight through bad anorexic behaviours. Now I have been changed to olanzopine and exactly the same is happening, my weight is rocketing, even though I am eating under 300 calories a day.

It is killing me, I am getting bigger by the day, I hate it. As an anorexic, gaining this amount of wait it devastating.

    I know what you mean about quietapine. I’ve never been this big! My doctor does want me on a high dose, saying that the benefits outweigh the side effects, but there is a point I cant cross 🙂
    Not sure what to do
