A few months ago I had started taking Abilify and had put on 20+ lbs since starting. I also gained 8+ lbs within 2 weeks which isn't possible due to that I have been eating healthier then normal. I have pending bloodwork for a lot of things including TSH and T4. I also have a family history (mother) of Hypothyroidism. I have since stopped taking the Abilify and wonder if there might be permanent damage to my thyroid gland.
