#060 – Antipsychotics And Weight Gain

I was always thin in my youth and twenties. I was fit too. I weighed myself the other day and I’m now over the hundred kilo mark. Most of this is my stomach. I wish it was more evenly distributed to my arms and legs but it’s just my gut. Some of this could be because of all the beer I was drinking but it seemed to kick in as soon as I started medication. I started to notice this especially when I started Clozapine. People have said to me that I’m not too overweight considering I’m on Cloz because it has a tendency to make people who take it into bigger people. 

Before I came into hospital I was doing a little exercise but I hate it so much. I loath having to do anything strenuous and I really have to push myself. I’m going to make a conscious effort to do more workouts once I leave hospital and hopefully get myself into better shape.

I'm a 37 year old who lives in Melbourne Australia. I have many interests but I want to base this blog on my mental health. I have schizophrenia, depression & anxiety. I have 15 years experience with psychiatrists and I have had close to 20 hospital admissions. I plan on writing about my delusions, voices, paranoia, depression and how to deal with them psychiatrists :) I really hope this blog can help someone. Please feel free to contact me and I promise to get back to you. Have a nice day!
