Been off meds a few years. Had basically become a hermit and was managing pretty well. Have started having some hypermania and some pretty frequent lows again. About 8 years ago I was on zyprexa and gained horrendous weight! battled to lose it and get myself well. I've had many issues with medications over years. Developed restless legs from SSRI's. What are some successful meds that won't cause weight gain and effect restless legs ppl can suggest?

One user mentioned that they didn't experience weight gain with Abilify (Apriprazole), but it did worsen their Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS). However, their doctor prescribed them pramipexole which helped with the RLS. Another user suggested Haldol, a first-generation antipsychotic, as it doesn't cause weight gain. It's also mentioned that Rexulti is a better alternative for weight management compared to other antipsychotics, despite some weight gain. Lastly, one user shared that they lost weight while on Loxapine and lorezapam.
