Hi there ~
I understand your concerns and that your husband was recently switched from pristiq
. I am sorry to hear that he is also overweight
. There are two ways to lose weight:
1. Eat right - and healthy. Which might mean that you need to consult a nutritionist.
2. Exercise regularly - 4 times a week for 30-40 min per session and it should include both cardio and weights.
Please use any other medication, especially if it is related to weight loss
only with consultation from your psychiatrist
or a specialist that can advise you about the particular medication. I hope you get yourself on the track to recovery and a healthy weight as soon as you can. I hope this helped.
Take care and have a lovely day!
