Do any antipsychotics antidepressants or benzodiazepines make your head get bigger? after 6 years of being on antipsychotics my head got a lot bigger.

Odd statement: The human skull gains 90% of its final volume/size by age 9 with slow changes until stopping growth by the early 20's. Your profile lists male pattern baldness at age 29 may exaggerate the appearance of your head, but I no of no reason your head would actually be larger because of meds.
