Risperdal & weight gain

I have been taking 2mg of Risperdal for psychosis related to hypothyroidism (not bipolar disorder, but I didn't know which board to post on) for the last 6 months and have gained about 20 pounds. My psychiatrist recently lowered my dosage to 1 mg/day - I would not stop complaining about the elevated prolactin and the weight gain. She said in her experience weight gained while on Risperdal usually comes off pretty quickly after a patient stops taking it. Can anyone confirm that?
