Hello. I take Geodon and Lamictal. What other medicine does your son take? I will mention possible weight gain to my doctor so he can look in my chart. I am wondering if I gained weight since being on this medicine. I was on invega and I had to stop taking it because I gained too much weight. I do not eat a lot so I am thinking my medicine is keeping my weight on. I plan on joining a gym to see if I can lose some weight. There are other medicines for schizophrenia such as risperdal. My mom takes it and is thin. Ask the doctor about Risperdal.
I am on the horrible drug geodon. But it actually doesn't seem to affect my appetite. But he could be emotionally eating becuase on geodon all your emotions are numbed and sometimes you just want to feel something. I'm not sure but I think eating releases dopinine Eucharist clearly would make him feel better since the drug is taking all that from him.in my case I've picked up smoking 2 packs a day.
