I've only been on a couple of medication, but the side effects were so severe and usually crippled my everyday lifestyle that I'd have to be taken off of them. I've had issues with an eating disorder as well so weight gain is not an option. I just feel I have little options and this in itself is enough to make me depressed. Am I always going to have to live this way, never knowing if it's going to be a good day or a bad day? Has anyone had success on specific medication without weight gain?
