  1. The day I first walked into my Pdoc ‘s office I weighted something like 125 pounds. I am 5’81/2″…I was tall svelte and had tons of energy. Possibly hypomania, but lots of energy nonetheless . I was prescribed Lithium, I gained 100 pounds in 3 months . My friends were shocked….I was appalled .Then I was on Topomax and lost about 40 pounds , but then couldn’t tolerate it for long. I am now taking Depakote, my weight is back up. My Pdoc and I had many discussions on the weight VS having a healthy weight . It’s more than just vanity. The extra weight is difficult on our joints and it saps our energy. People seldom understand the complications of taking meds, maintaining stability …they think if we just ate less we would lose weight. BAHHHHHH….. My Pdoc told me I could eat nothing but lettuce , run a maraton every week , and I wouldn’t lose weight. Encouraging isn’t it NOT
