Risperdal Weight Increased Causes and Reviews


Do you know if your current weight is healthy? "Underweight", "normal", "overweight", and "obese" are all labels for ranges of weight. Obese and overweight mean that your weight is greater than it should be for your health. Underweight means that it is lower than it should be for your health. Your healthy body weight depends on your sex and height. For children, it also depends on your age.

A sudden, unexpected change in weight can be a sign of a medical problem. Causes for sudden weight loss can include

  • Thyroid problems
  • Cancer
  • Infectious diseases
  • Digestive diseases
  • Certain medicines

Sudden weight gain can be due to medicines, thyroid problems, heart failure, and kidney disease.

Good nutrition and exercise can help in losing weight. Eating extra calories within a well-balanced diet and treating any underlying medical problems can help to add weight.


Risperdal Weight Increased Reviews

Tue, 05 Jun 2012

My 8 year old daughter has Type 1 diabetes and had ketosis as well after about 13 months on Risperdal, which was prescribed off label for her ADHD.  There is noone on either side of her family that has or had Type 1 Diabetes.

Thu, 06 Jan 2011
Is it ok to take Valerian with Risperadal (I take 1.5 mg a day)?
Wed, 12 May 2010
Went from 96 lbs to 170 lbs in a few short months. Haven't been able to lose any of the weight. I no longer have periods either. Haven't had one since 08. I'm writing this comment in May of 2010. Besides the schizophrenia, it was the worst thing to happen to me. It didn't even keep my paranoia, delusions or voices in check. I wasn't able to go back to a somewhat normal life until I switched drugs.
