does risperdal change your metabolism?


Recommended Posts

i know that zyprexa and seroquel change your metabolism. i'm not sure how, but i think they mess with what the body consumes from the food you eat and in what order. i'm really bad at all this metabolism stuff. my question is, does risperdal do the same? because i definitely have the munchies on it, and i've gained something like 15 pounds and diet and exercise seem to be pretty inadequate in terms of helping to get rid of the extra pounds. how effective are exercise and diet change in fighting weight gain from risperdal? because i know they are not that effective with zyprexa or seroquel.

am i getting any of this right?

Unfortunately I can't answer your actual question (although I think I asked it a year ago and heard that it DOESN'T, but I don't remember), I can commiserate with you... When I was on Risperdal (3 mg) no matter how much I exercised and ate well, I didn't lose weight. Now I didn't gain a lot because I was trying to lose, but no matter what I did, I couldn't lose. It was very frustrating...

is there any medication to curve carb cravings? besides speed? i'm serious wall.gif

It depends on your definition of "speed". Provigil killed my appitite more than amphetamine. I found after a while I could eat some and that was enough. I need to drop 25 pounds, so it was a good thing.

I don't know how to curb the carb cravings, but i'm currently doing weight watchers and it's reversing the weight gain. slowly but surely.

eat lots of veggies or fruit and drink lots of water or diet soda/tea/plain coffee when you're having cravings. it gradually seems to work.
