Do you know if antipsychotics actually slow down our metabolism


#1

My CPN did not know and I forgot to ask my pdoc.
Did your pdoc tell you so or do you have any writing on it


#2

It’s obvious. I eat the same, and I gain weight


#3

But are you more sedentary now. I sit around and lie around so much n can’t exercise the same anymore


#4

I can’t do anything.


#5

No wonder iam fat!


#6

I dunno if it is true but I have heard someone say it on here before…

:unamused:


#7

It would explain alot of things if its true.


#8

I ate the same and gained weight


#9

some did/some didn’t. The typicals really didn’t for me. atypicals, yes but after a while you can train your metabolism to work a lil better


#10

The patient information sheet that came with my Zyprexa said atypical antipsychotics can cause metabolic syndrome, so that would mean the answer is yes.
