Hi all, I haven't been around in a long time, things have been going so wonderfully for my ds! He is happy, he is not showing ADHD symptoms, no meltdowns/rages/anger issues in months. I mean, I'd call us "normal" right now LOL The only problem is that since starting on Geodon, he has been steadily gaining weight. Unfortunately I don't remember his starting weight but I know that at his 8yr check up about 1 month ago he was 90 lbs and his dr said his BMI was dangerously high (I know there's BMI controversy, but the fact is, he is overweight for his height). Anyway, he's been sick so when we were back at the dr this week, his weight is up to 99. I mean, 9 lbs in a month seems extreme to me. I don't have him on a super strict diet, I haven't changed his diet really. We eat "brown" carbs, vegetables, fruit, lean meat, just in general. I allow him to have treats and snacks, he's just a kid afterall! His diet has not changed enough in the past few months to be contribting to the high weight gain. But, at what point does the severe weight gain take precidence over the great mental benefits of a medication? neither one of us have been this happy in years, we're just in such a good spot right now, I hate the thought of tinkering with his medications, but I also don't want to start a lifelong journey with weight issues at 8. Thoughts? I know Geodon is supposedly weight neutral, but I have not found that to be the case. he was on Abilify and we took him off of that for weight gain, he was doing fine weight wise, but not behavior wise, so a few months later we tried geodon and the weight started climbing right back up.
