Abilify weight gain metabolism

Recommended Posts

I'm on Abilify and have experienced weight gain.  I have an increased appetite but have been cutting back and exercising more but unable to lose weight. Does abilify affect metabolism making it harder to lose weight? I know that some antidepressants do this. I was on Paxil and it did this.

Abilify tends to be one of the more weight-neutral antipsychotics, but for some unlucky few people, they either experience weight gain and/or difficulty losing weight. If you continue to experience weight gain, you could probably ask to try one of the other atypical antipsychotics that are more weight-neutral, like Vraylar or Latuda.
