I recently stopped taking Trazadone. I had gained 50 lbs on it, over 4 years of being on it. Now that I’m off of it, will I lose the weight? Did I slow down, and ruin my metabolism forever?! I sure hope not!!

Come up with a clear plan. Dint just starve yourself by doing a crash diet.

If you do it right you won't ruin your metabolism.

Not with Trazadone, but with Depakote, which is notorious for this. I'm lucky I didn't gain nearly as much as other people often do.

Still, I do intermittent fasting, eat like a bird, avoid most carbs, avoid processed foods, and get out and walk as much as I can.

My metabolism hates me. Of course, it doesn't help that I'm 56, and post menopausal women have a really hard time losing weight in general.

My advice is to forget about "weight", and focus on a healthy lifestyle and whole foods. Talk to a nutritionist if you need to. Remove tempting nosh from the house. Get out and move as much as you can. Hopefully you can get your body into a healthier place, and you can be happy with any progress you make, even if your dress size doesn't budge for a year or two.

Hatzlocha! Hug
