I knew this girl who was put on risperdal and in 33 days went from an underweight bmi to an obese bmi. And she also got this huge rack.

Is that common? My old insurance tried switching me to risperdal and I told them to go shove it.

When I started risperdal, and when I've increased my dose, I had this happen to me. It also gave me lighter periods and, for a few months, they were farther apart. My pdoc said it can also cause lactation.

Thankfully, I haven't had any weight gain though.

Lamotrigine: 300 mg
Bupropion: 150 mg
Risperidone: 3 mg
