Our expert says:
Of course many of us have weight problems, whether on meds or not. Some psych meds, including some used to treat bipolar disorder, do seem to encourage weight gain in some people ; but if one has achieved good mood control, one may well choose not to risk it by changing the meds that work for you. I"m not aware of any good evidence that any paticular foods are relevant, and need to be embraced or avoided. I wonder if anyone in the Anxiety/Depression Support Group has any sensible advice on this ? ( Their number should be on this page ).
