(I am thinking about switching to Zyprexa... ) I am currently taking 1 mg Risperdal/daily. I have gained a little weight and have been going to the gym regularly for the past 3 months and am seeing no improvement. I am convinced that it is the Risperdal keeping me from being able to lose the weight. I am considering talking to my doctor about stopping the risperdal and switching it out with something different. I know of quite a few people who have gained a significant amount of weight while on Zyprexa, but i know that some people either gain no weight or actually lose some weight. My question is, if you are or were taking Zyprexa, did you gain or lose weight?
