I'm on Marplan + Low-dose Seroquel. Marplan isn't a huge weight gainer, but w/ this combo I've always trended up a couple lbs a year. Haven't been able to lose at all w/ exercise/starvation.

With Rybelsus, there's a 3mg dose you start w/ for a month to titrate up to avoid side effects at the normal doses of 7mg then 14mg. Some lose weight on 3mg as I did:

So far:

233.0 - March 12 (Start 3mg)
230.8 - March 19
226.2 - March 26
227.1 - April 2 (Started 7mg after 3wks)
225.4 - April 9
222.9 - April 16

I'm ecstatic for ~10lbs in a month w/o changing my routine. The scale has done nothing but creep up the past 5 or so years. I'm in a group on FB and by all indications this medicine really works...w/ people loosing 40, 50, 60+lbs.

My first goal is to get under 216lbs which is where I was when 3yrs ago when Marplan went into shortage and I had to switch to Nardil. After that, I'd love to finally get back under 200 for the first time since 2010. And finally if I can get down to "normal" wt for my 6' ht (~185) I'd be soooo happy. I really feel like it's possible.

I'll update down the road.
