We all know the joy of medication side effects. The most annoying one, I think, is weight gain.
You don’t even have to eat and you still pile on the stone!!!
This is a mixture of a slower metabolism and cravings for sugar/carbohydrates.
Some meds put you at risk of type 2 diabetics, obesity and several more unsavoury things.
We shall start with Anti-psychotics. The well known Fatty pills.
Other negative effects are shown here:
Now I have gained far more that the 10lb is states. 😳 so how do I go about shifting this.
I think it’s the old fashioned way; eating less / more healthy and excercising more nooooo
It’s not just the antipsychotics. Antidepressants and mood stabilisers can ALS0 put on the weight.
Any diet tips welcomed, or easy excersises for lazy people like me, who can’t get out bed some days please comment.
We need help!!! Lol
Also found a chart regarding anti depressent effectiveness survey along with side effects

Cholesterol, prolactin levels
