Question Risperadal

I have been told by my pdoc that risperadal makes you gain weight. If you have controlled eating habits please tell me how much weight you have gained even when eating with self control. I feel fat. The risperadal helps me not to hallucinate and helps with irritability.

Re: Risperadal

When I was on this drug, I got severe constipation. That distended my stomach and made me feel fat along with pain and not feeling well. Make sure you have been having regular bowel movements so you dont get sick like i did. I gained weight while on this drug as well but cant pin point what exactly caused it? Could have been due to my reaction that caused constipation or maybe ate more food, been too long to remember that too well. Just pay attention to all that is going on with you , even if it seems insignificant or its embarrassing.....your health is too important not to.
