Hello to all. I am new to this forum. I was diagnosed with TS 9 years ago and have been on orap (pimozide) for 7 of those years. Also, I have been on apro-sertraline for the past 2 1/2 years to deal with minor OCD.
The reason I am writing is to see if there are any other teens out there who have noticed weight gain and appetite gain due to one or both of these medications. I tried to gradually discontinue taking the sertraline (from 75 mg) but was unsuccessful and am now back on 50 mg. I also tried reducing the orap but found that my tics were becoming worse immediately.
I was wondering if anyone had any tips for me?
