Geodon and abilify CAN be less weight inducinng, but they still cause weight gain in some. It all depends on your body's reaction to the drug.
If you really like risperdal, i would suggest looking into healthy weight loss strategies rather than switching meds, at least at first. you do have some other options to try if it simply doesn't go well. However, abilify and geodon also tend to be more activating and whatnot than the big 3, which are more sedating, so they are not always good choices for people.... it's very complicated with the AAPs. Talk to your doctor.
Currently on: neurontin,. seroquel, tienaptine, NAC, lithium, temazepam, latuda, provigil, a bunch of health meds/supps to deal w/ s.e. of crazy meds. (metformin, armour thyroid, Vit B 12 shots, magnesium, the list goes on, sigh, I feel like an OLD person, heh). Yeah, i am on a lot of crazy meds.
