Splitting medicine dose

Does it reduce weight gain if you split the dose into a morning and night dosage?

My psychiatrist told me it reduces motor and drowziness side effects only

I don’t believe it causes less weight problems, the meds over time build up in your system at a constant rate, that’s why they stay in your system for a while after you’ve taken them. Zyprexa, prolixen, and paxil, caused the worst problems of hunger for me. Zyprexa is a good med despite the hunger problem, I’m on 5 mg now. I just went up from 2.5 but if it makes me a little hungry I’m just going to endure it, I feel better already. I also take Latuda.
