Ditto Zyprexa is supposed to literally give you the munchies in a similar way to cannabis.

Risperidone was pretty bad, I think I gained about 15 kgs on it.

Zyprexa / Olanzapine did it for me. I am off it now and will never go back. They will have to put me in a secure unit under depot to ever put that ■■■■ in my body again.

I gained about 15-20 lbs. on Haldol, but when I was on Zyprexa I craved sugar constantly. I gained about sixty pounds on Zyprexa, but that was starting from a totally lean weight. I went from 140 lbs. to 200 lbs. in about 120 days. That’s half a pound a day I gained. I can’t figure out how I did that, because I would have had to have an excess of 1,750 calories a day to gain that much body fat.

Out of the Atypicals - the worst offenders for weight gain are Zyprexa, Seroquel, Risperdal, Invega, Fanapt

Abilify, Geodon, Latuda, Saphris are not usually big weight gaining meds.

Everyone reacts differently to these meds

I gained the most when I was on Seroquel alone. I was up 20 to going on 30 pounds.

But when it got cut back dramatically, it sure did help get me up and moving.
