I have been on Fazaclo for 8 years. I have been dealing with an increase appitite that my doctors says is from the Fazaclo. I fight with food every day, all day long. I gained approx. 40 pounds and cannot get the weight off. I take this med for bi polar. Everytime I try and talk to my doctor he just commends me for sticking with it. I don't want to stick with it. I want off this drug and he will not work with me on how to wean off of it. Any suggestions?

Hello, Prisilla! How are you doing? Sorry about the problems that you're having.

Yes, weight gain is a very well known side effect of Fazaclo, along with night-time drooling, muscle stiffness, sedation and tremors.

Learn more Fazaclo details here.

Since it is such a potent medication, tapering would have to be done very, very slowly to prevent adverse reactions, but I am not sure of the exact procedure used.

Do you think you may be able to consult a different doctor for assistance?

Dear Verwon, Thank you for responding. Yes, I have all those side effects! I actually never thought of consulting another doctor for help, so thanks for the suggestion. When I see my doctor this month I will let him know if he doesn't work with me, I will seek the help some where else. (I say that, but every time I see my doctor I feel like he manipulates me and all the power I think I have when I go in I loose by the time I leave his office)
