Schizophrenia Medication That Doesn't Cause Weight Gain

Could someone please give me a list of all the schizophrenia drugs that don't cause weight gain? I know Geodon doesn't. But are there any others?

Answer

Hello pinkfloyd,

I've been on Geodon for two years with no weight gain. However I understand that the Geodon might not work for everyone for tries it. The next drug in terms of less weight gain is Abilify. I'm under the impression Abilify could cause more weight gain than Geodon but less than the other big culprits.

Regards,

Christina
