Hello:
I just joined the Forum and wanted to introduce myself. I have bipolar disorder and am going through a medication change right now. My doc is having me taper off one med and start another. It's been kind of a challenge, and I'm worried about gaining more weight (I've gained 30 pounds from the last med.) I am pretty determined to take control though, and exercise daily and really, really watch what I eat. I hope that works.

I wanted to join this Forum to share ideas and experiences with other people going through the same types of issues. I hope that I can add something positive to the Forum. I have participated in other on-line forums and found them to be quite helpful and rewarding.

Thanks to the moderators for doing what they do and making this Forum a reality. I'm eager to start and get to know people here.

Regards,
Queta

Hi Queta,
I am fairly new as well. I also have bipolar disorder and have been battling weight gain for several years. I wish people would understand that these meds really do make you gain weight!! Looking forward to hearing from you.

Welcome to the forum, Queta. :hi:
I'm sure many people here can relate to the dreaded medication changes and all the side effects that come with that.
I hope you find the forum helpful.
