In brief: YES
Risperdal can be associated with weight gain and other metabolic changes.
Stimulants, such as Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) can be associated with appetite suppression and weight loss. If the fluctuations are extreme (more than 10% of body weight), a medical workup should be done.
