Antipsychotic weight: You may ask about Fanapt, Latuda, and Saphris (asenapine) as alternatives. Abilify is another option as is Seroquel XR in long-term studies. Best wishes.

Find non drug alternatives also to alleviate symptoms. These could include cognitive behavior therapy and yoga. Check out the book "Change, Transformation, and Beyond" by Dr Om Prakash.

Abilify (aripiprazole): Abilify (aripiprazole) may be an option. It has been linked with weight gain although typically less marked than zyprexa or seroquel.
