Before i started Ariapripazole in aug 2019, i was 77 kg. Within 2 years on it i went to 102 kg, i couldnt accept this so by eating 1000 or less calories a day ive becom 75 kg. Generally losing 1-2 kg a week. I feel so relived, obsviouly i cant eat what i like or when, but for me its worth it.

The dose started at 400 a month depot and now is 200 thankfully.

like to hear your thoughts
