Clozapine - January 5th 2015, 08:21 PM

Has anyone been on it? My psych wants to me on it but I'm scared of the weight gain? Experiences would be good x

I've never been on it but I want to let you know that it won't magically make you gain weight. It might make you hungrier than normal or food won't keep you full as long. If you do start this medication, just focus on eating healthy and you won't have a problem. If your doctor recommends it, then I think it's worth giving it a try.


And here you are living, despite it all.

I was on clozapine for awhile and I didn't find so much that I gained a lot of weight, but I did find that I was more hungrier and unable to loose weight. Its not so much as it makes you put on weight, it gives you a larger appetite and loosing weight is harder. I think you should discuss your options with your doctor and see what will work best.

I hope this helps Message me if you ever want to talk.
