Hi Jack,
I'd absolutley without doubt choose Zyprexa. A lot of people say that Risperidone has few s/effects- I am a big disbeliever of this. On 2mg I had extreme akathisia. I have heard of plenty of reports of EPS from Risperidone and maybe 1 or 2 from Zyprexa, and Risperidone has been out longer.

Diabetes from Zyprexa is not definite- I am sceptical after reading a great paper on the subject. Weight gain is often but not definite. Zyprexa has shown efficacy for depression in many clinical trials- after much searching I havent seen any for Risperidone, only OCD.

Good luck Jack!
