Zyprexa caused weight gain. Now that I am stopped and switched to Abilify (aripiprazole) my belly is out. Is this from Abilify (aripiprazole) or what?

In brief: See below

Abilify (aripiprazole) is far less likely to cause carbohydrate cravings than zyprexa.
That said, cravings or trouble controlling food intake occur regardless of medications in many people.
