This may not be your experience, Dinah, but I gained 12 pounds in one month on risperdal. I didn't eat any more than usual, I just started gaining weight uncontrollably. The same thing happened with abilify and zyprexa. The worst part is that I suffer from really severe, deep depressions and this class of drugs will pull me out of it within 72 hours. Nothing else we've tried works. But I get fat from these drugs. In the past three years, after multiple trials of these drugs, I have gained a net of 40 pounds. I gained weight, went off the drugs, lost 23 pounds, got psychotically depressed, went back on, gained all the weight back. went off, lost weight, went back on, gained it all back and more. Went off, lost weight again.

I finally forswore this class of drugs and am now trying and MAOI. So far it hasn't helped, but I only went up to the full dose a week ago, so we'll see.
