ManWitPlan Posted October 9, 2011 Share Posted October 9, 2011 Has anyone had any success controlling weight on the weight gain meds like zyprexa, clozaril, risperdal, seroquel etc If so how did you do it? How much exercise is needed to control weight when on these meds? Also even if you exercise and have weight controlled can you still get diabetes and high cholesterol? Cause i'm also worried about the blood lipids being effected. I was on latuda for 6 months and it took my blood lipids from high to normal. But i've been having some racing thought issues that zyprexa seems to fix right away. So ive been taking that for a few days but last time I took it mixed with invega 9 mg my blood lipids rose to dangerous levels. I really would like to stay on zyprexa since it helps my mental problems and i'm willing to do what it takes to not get diabetes or high cholesterol. I just don't know how much exercise/ diet I need to do. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
