Hi @Riversong1 🌷
I have had multiple medication changes over 20yrs and many had lethargic and weight gain side effects.
Over the years the most effective way for me to help find what medications worked best was being part of my own recovery and talking with my doctors letting them know how they are affecting my mood, energies (signs and symptoms) writing it down and bringing my notes to appointments.
Sadly medications won't bring me recovery alone. It's many things and actions I have to do like....exercise, hobbles, groups, educating myself on diagnosis, friends, family. I like to say it takes a villages and a team of professionals to keep me well and happy. 🙏
