I was given Zyprexa instead of Saphris after 6 months taking it and gaining 30+ lbs.! But over 5 days my hunger is out of control. I'm not thinking Zyprexa is the answer. I hear great things about Geodon. Does anyone know anything personally? This weight is depressing. I'm also taking Topamax to combat the weight. Too early to tell yet. I want to be hopeful. Please help with any insight!
I'm taking 120 mg. of Geodon and 1.5 mg. of Saphris for sleep and i have put on 15 pounds. i was takng 5 mg. of Saphris but thought if i could cut it down, i could stop putting on weight. i wasn't sure if my weight gain was from the Saphris or the Geodon. I'm also taking Topamax for the added weight(though I haven't seen any weight loss yet). Don't know if this helps or not!
