My current pdoc is trying to retire, so I've been visiting new docs. Saw my old doc (whom I hate) and he said to try low dose Abilify for a week while I was on vacation. I swelled up and gained 6 lbs, just like last time. I hated it.
I found another doc, whom I really like and she said Wellbutrin is a good antidepressant, but only if you're stable. She said to go back to 600mg a day of Trileptal and try 75mg or even half that of Wellbutrin. Been a few days and seems ok, but I feel hungrier or like I'm gaining weight on higher dose Trileptal.
Anyone know if Trileptal will cause weight gain? You'd think the Wellbutrin would counter that, but I'm on a low dose of Wellbutrin.
