I had a huge weight gain on zyprexa, apprently it is considered the worse offender of the group. On risperdal, I may have gained a few pounds initially (it's hard to tell when your on multiple drugs/offenders)but it tends to level out- I think zyprexa is more of an exponential weight gain. Hope you find something you can live with. Bristol-Myers Squibb is running clinical trials on a variant of zyprexa that has no weight gain. It is called aripiprazole. I called them and got the name of local clinic doing the trials but it involves a 24 day hospital stay and they use a placebo (which is why you are probably hospitalized) That is not for me, but maybe others are interested. Take care- Judy
