Illness vs meds: Your question is too complicated to be answered with the information provided in the space allotted. I would recommend that you go back to your psychiatrist and ask about your particular condition and your response to these medications. If fatigue or weight gain have been issues, please discuss these directly with your treating provider. Best wishes to you.

Go see your doctor: I can't tell if you're taking both Geodon (ziprasidone) & Risperdal at same time as these are both antipsychotics and can affect your muscle tone. Tell your prescribing physician (psychiatrist, right/) what's going on. You may need adjustment of dose and/or regimen.
