For about a month now I have been experiencing a daily lack of appetite, with it becoming worse these last two weeks. I say worse because I have lost roughly 10kg (22lbs) in two weeks. Now, I am not complaining about the weight loss at the moment as its about what I put on when I first started taking lithium. My main concern is, is it due to one of the medications I take or have I developed something else as I read up that this is a symptom of hyperthyroidism. Other things that may be causing it, again not sure:
– Tapering of Lorazepam (Been on it for a month, starting tapering off about 7 days ago).
– Abilify was started two weeks ago.
– My lithium levels were two high from a blood test a week ago and I was reduced.
So a few things going on at the moment, which I am sure is the cause.
Anyone else suffered with loss of appetite and weight loss while taking similar medications?
