> Back to topic please! I am not asking for new drugs here at all!

Exchanging the offending drug for another one, at least in part, is a valid option in the situation you describe. There are many medications that offer more units of antipsychotic action per unit of weight gain induction.

Note that another option is adding a drug such as amphetamine to help with weight loss, but I didn't mention this, because it seemed inappropriate in your situation.

Another option is simply to reduce the dose of the offending drug, but you say psychosis gets worse if you go too fast.

The final option I can think of is to eat less and exercise more. Probably this is the healthiest approach, and it is certain to work if you have the self-discipline needed to do it successfully.

Other than the above, I don't know what you can do.
