Hayate Posted October 26, 2011 Share Posted October 26, 2011 I gave been on Risperdal in the past on and off. 0.25-1mg does not seem to mess with my weight.however, for every 0.25 increase over 1mg the weight gain kicks in at a disproportionate level with each 0.25 increase.Don't get me wrong Risperdal is an incredible help for me but the weight gain is unacceptable (like 1-2 pounds gained a day) My pdoc wants me to load up on Risperdal after I get stabilized on the Depakote (which BTW does not cause weight gain in me). I might end up needing around 2-3 mg maintenance dose of Risperdal. My question... Has anyone here switched from Risperdal to Invega and noticed less weight gain/weight reduction? My insurance company is nice enough to pay for Invega so It's not a cost issue. I ask because perhaps even though Risp and Invega have near identical mental effects, perhaps Invega has a subtle difference in this regard? FYI, even Zypexa does not cause a bit of weight gain in me. One would generally think the opposite. Any input whatsoever would be greatly appreciated!
