Hi everyone. I am so depressed. I have severe post partum psychosis and the doc/psychiatrist put me on a ton of medication. Namely Seroquel, Lexapro, and Xanax. The probelm is while I am feeling much more like my old self I have gained 10lbs in the 3 weeks I have been on this stuff. I have been eating slightly more sweets but am still exercising daily. I am going nuts. I try to eat less and exercise more but that ends with a binge on ice cream or something at the end of the week...Has anyone else had an experience like this?
