Ariel Winter is warning fans about the unexpected weight loss she had after changing her antidepressants medication.
Monday a fan commented on the apparent wieght loss
“Hi, so I read online that you changed meds and you were able to lose the weight you gained," the social media user wrote [sic]. "May I ask what are the meds you are on now that have helped? Any info would be helpful so I can talk to my doctor."
She cautionally replied
“My psychiatrist and therapist both advised me that it could be potentially be harmful to anyone who thinks that since it worked for me it will automatically work for them,” she wrote. “Just because it changed the weight side effect for me doesn't mean it will for everyone.”
Winter had opened up about her wieght loss a few weeks ago due to body shamers.
“For years I had been on anti-depressants that caused me to gain weight that I couldn't lose no matter what I did," she wrote. “It was always frustrating for me because I wanted to be able to get fit and feel like the work I was doing was paying off, but it never felt that way. I had accepted it and moved on.”
“I stayed on those medications for so long because the process is really long and difficult. I wasn't ready to go through it again so I just accepted feeling eh instead of trying to find something to actually feel better.”
Winter has found the medicine that is right for her
“The change in medication instantly made me drop all of the weight I couldn't lose before by just giving me back a metabolism,” she explained. “That was very unexpected.”
