I have been on Lithium for months now and I am very happy with the way it has helped my mood swings. The bad side? It has caused some weight gain and it is killing me. I know that to many a ten pound difference is not a lot, but to me who has lived with an eating disorder for years now, it is just not going well. I eat less than I used to, work out more than I did and I am not big on sugary drinks. Last I saw my doctor we talked about looking into getting switched to other meds, but I'm not sure if I'll find anything out there that won't trigger my ed. Any thoughts or suggestions? I really want to keep my bipolar disorder under control, but I don't want to end up starving myself again. Help?
