Just a little more about me, I currently started taking Symbyax (antipsychotic and prozac in one) and that has caused me to gain about 20 lbs in 4 weeks, that is why I do not have the weight anymore. I am currently trying to find a medication that will not cause me to gain weight, but it's not a very fast process. If anyone knows of bipolar medication that works that doesn't cause weight gain, let me know. If you have any other questions just ask. I am more then willing to answer anything.
