What You Eat



Happy Saturday. While I have been writing here, I have discovered I have a really boring life. So lets talk about nutrition.

A really bad side effect of a lot of the meds is to gain weight. With the sedation effect, it usually results in weight gain. Watching what you eat is very important while on medication. Speak with your Doctor or Pharmacist about the side effects.

Try to snag an appointment with a nutritionist to help build a healthy diet. Watch for contraindications with certain food/med combinations. For instance, I cannot eat grapefruit because of one of my antidepressants (go figure).

As I do not prescribe, you will have look up the good foods for the mentally ill.
