I have been on a variety off medication for the last 30 years and the weight gain is killing me. I really want to come off the medication and to try without to see if the weight will start to go down. The problem is nobody agrees with me because I get unwell the times I have secretly stopped taking them. So now a family member comes round every day to give me my meds. I have to rack my brains on how I can get round this problem. Anyone else have similer problems with weight gain (I am on sodium valproate 1000mg/fluoxetine 20mg/Aripiprazole 15mg) I used to be a nice 7stone but over the years has now got to 13 stone and I am only 5 ft. I already have heart problems/ sleep apena/type 2 diebeties so things are going downhill fast.
