wieght gain and abilify

So I've been taking ability for less 2 months and have gained 20lbs... I'm 5'10" So it doesn't look as much but I'm getting depressed by it since I've always been on the small side (130lbs)... Has anyone else had a similar issue?

Strange. It is usually weight neutral. It has been for me.

I have only been taking it for 10 days but I wake at night feeling hungry and I can't sleep.  I have to eat something so I suspect I will gain weight.  My doctor cautioned me about weight gain, tho.  Said to let him know if I gained weight so I guess it happens sometimes?

I started taking Abilify three years ago. When I began taking it I weighed 115 lbs at five foot two inches. Now I weigh 180 pounds! I finally decided to stop taking Abilify because the benefits did not outweigh the horrible health risks of being obese.
