Abilify and Weight gain

We need your help to bring a very pressing problem straight into the limelight in such a way that no-one can deny the problem.
Lots of autistic children are prescribed medication which helps them in a way, but which also causes uncontrollable weight gain up to a pound per week.

I need to hear from parents whose autistic child is using abilify.

Help me find them.

I have been taking Abilify for the last two years, and I have also noticed a weight increase. I was around 120 when I started taking it, and now I am around 165. I had asked my doctor about the weight gain, and she had told me that it shouldn't cause weight gain. I was sure that it was. My autistic boys are not on Abilify thankfully, but I wanted to let you know that I have experienced weight gain as well. Thank you so much for the post. I also followed your blog as well. Hope that you will also visit me at http://www.autismandtheworldaroundme.blogspot.com. Hope that you have a wonderful day, and thanks for the post.
