Those of you who take/have taken the #antipsychotic Risperidone, did you gain weight? If so, and you got rid of the weight, how long did it take?
I have a super fast metabolism and can lose weight in a flash. But i've been gaining weight. I was sedentary for a few months, then got a large puppy who HAS to go on walks. My normal weight is about 115 lbs. When I started walking I was up to 148 lbs. I've cut my caloric intake by probably half, and since April 24, I've walked over 80 miles, over 170,000 steps (i have a pedometer app) with my dog. After walking over 80 miles in about a month my weight is... still... 148 lbs. I realized last night that the Risperidone is probably the culprit. This happened when I took Lithium. NOT HAPPY.
