BACKGROUND Psychotropic drugs can induce significant (>5%) weight gain (WG) already after 1 month of treatment, which is a good predictor for major WG at 3 and 12 months. The large interindividual variability of drug-induced WG can be explained in part by genetic and clinical factors. AIM The aim of this study was to determine whether extensive analysis… CONTINUE READING
