Any peeps gaining weight on psych meds interested in this new type of weight loss pill? Or, are you just settling for gaining weight? Ya' know, I don't understand those who do settle for gaining weight. Do you think your P would?
If a P says I'll gain weight on a med, I say no thanks. I don't care if I feel better emotionally. I cannot carry 50lbs of weight in the front of my body like a kangaroo w/ fat in a pouch!
I know lots of u must think I'm vain. I've heard 'all the arguments' re: it's how they feel not how they look. (Yeah, right.)
But this is something you should know about me; I'm freakin' poor!!!
I can't afford to be a Weight Watcher or hire a personal trainer. I can't afford some of the supplements and 'finer' foods. It's pretty much Healthy Choice meals 4me.
If I could afford the aforementioned forms of weight mngt, I'd jump at the chance.
So, any1 tried this new Alli & will u pls share?
ps: If all 'keep putting up with weight gain attached to pysch meds and don't complain', I'm afraid the scientific community will never see the necessity to research and correct problem. They will see it as 'acceptable', and, maybe, 'because they're just mentally ill anyway'!(?) Think I'm wrong? I think Ps and FDA and everyone up there at the top of the pyramid need to know we're sick of this side effect!
