Debbie's experience

#1

I worked in a pizza place with a girl named Debbie. (name changed) She was a little overweight and a little plain, but she was confident, competent, and outgoing. For some reason she got sent to the mental hospital and put on medication. She became huge, and she walked around with this little, joyless, almost demented smile on her face. You could tell that her whole belief in herself had been lost. You could also tell that she lost any belief in life. I don’t know what she did to cause that.

that’s terribly sad. Modern medications typically dont cause dramatic weight gain like they used to…geodon doesn’t…just doesnt.

Sad. Risperidone caused me to gain weight rapidly. Hope things work out well for her
