Question: I was on the drug risperdal, for about 2 years. A side effect was weight gain, and I gained about 45-50 pounds. I was about 160 and now I'm about 201. I'm really upset I gained that much weight. And now it's hard to lose it. I've been off the drug for about 2 weeks. How can I lose the extra weight and go back to what I was? Any suggestions?

What common or serious side effects occur with weight loss pills (diet pills)? Some weight loss drugs are associated with important or serious side effects, or may have the potential for dependence and abuse. Fenfluramine, used in the combination drug fen-phen was associated with dangerous heart and lung side effects and is no longer on the market. Sibutramine was removed from the U.S. market in 2010, also due to an increased risk of serious heart side effects, including heart attack and stroke. Many of the weight loss drugs known as sympathomimetic amines can stimulate the heart and lead to high blood pressure and fast heart rates (tachycardia). Lipase inhibitors such as Alli or Xenical have been associated with rare liver injury and patients should be alert for signs of liver disease such as itching, yellow skin or eyes (jaundice), stomach pain, loss of appetite, pale or tar-colored stools, brown-colored urine (due to excess bilirubin in the urine). Qsymia was FDA-approved as a new weight loss medication in 2012. Qsymia has a restricted-access program and risk evaluation and mitigation strategy (REMS) because one of the drugs contained in Qsymia by the name of topiramate can lead to severe birth defects in pregnant women. Many stimulant weight loss drugs may be associated with constipation, dry mouth, restlessness, withdrawal effects, or insomnia (difficulty falling asleep). Most weight loss medications are only recommended for short-term (up to 12 weeks) use; however, orlistat (Alli, Xenical) can be used for longer-term weight loss, including the maintenance of previously lost weight. Qsymia and Belviq are also indicated for chronic, long-term use if weight loss occurs with use of these medications. Most people will regain some or all of the weight they lost when they stop using weight loss drugs unless efforts are made to retain their weight loss with diet and exercise.

You *might* gain weight on any SSRI drug, but it isn't a sure thing: if you are normally a stress eater, you may find that you actually loose weight. Be very careful: if you start feeling much better within a couple days of starting this drug, it's a sign that you are experiencing a placebo effect: it's your hope that's helping you, not the drug. That means your brain chemistry if fine-- you don't need a pill, you need a therapist to help you own your hope. And remember: this class of drug is associated with an increased risk of suicide in young people. If you get to feeling desperate or feel your emotions getting out of control TELL SOMEONE right away. A prominent psychologist says that SSRIs for depression are like aspirin for a broken leg: fine for coping with the symptom, but it should be just the beginning of a treatment program, not the whole thing. Here's a link to a site I've been reading. I don't agree with everything on it, but the writer seems to have some real insight about battling depression.

Yorath Originally Answered: what is an anti-anxiety medication that doesn't make you gain weight?
The first line treatment for social anxiety is SSRIs right now. Chance of gaining weight on SSRIs in not very significant (considering the fact that you can stop it before putting on too much weight, if you notice any increase in your appetite that cannot be controlled). For psychiatric medications, weight gain is one of the most disturbing and common side effects of antipsychotics and mood stabilizers. Antipsychotics are however the very last resort for treating social anxiety and in the very unlikely case that you get to that point, you will still have the chance to decide. But I wouldn't worry about that. I have tried at least 10 different medications, including SSRIS, antipsychotic Seroquel which is famous for its weight gain and diabetes side effects, mood stabilizers valproate and lithium (both known for significant weight gain) - and I have never had problem with weight gain. So just go ahead and try some and see how your body reacts.
