I have noticed over the past few months that my appetite has greatly increased and my weight has been effected. Back in January 2019, I weighed 86kg (189lbs), I felt good and had normal mobility (i.e. I could play sport). Now it’s April 2019 and my weight is 95kg (206lbs), thats an increase of 9kg (20lbs) in three months.

Now I am sure it is one of the medications I am taking, I just don’t know which one? Anyone else having weight gain, and if so which medications are causing it?

Medications I am taking:

  • Lithium 1200mg
  • Olanzapine 20mg
  • Atorvastation 20mg
  • Diazepam 20mg
