Risperidone Side Effect!

I have gained 10lbs in less than a WEEK!!!! I did not literally work my ass off to lose the weight from Zyprexa and Depakote to have this happen. I called my doctor yesterday and he says it can’t be fat weight it has to be water weight, I don’t care. I have gained 3lbs since I spoke to him yesterday! There’s no way in hell I’m taking this so he’s going to have to come up with something else. I won’t stop it without talking to him first but I’m not giving him a choice either. I’m a great patient because I always take my meds so he’ll have to respect my wishes on this one.

    Yes, this drug can do that. Haloperidol may not, but I’m not sure. It’s an older drug. But it could help.
