Our expert says:
The medication you are taking is not supposed to have a big effect on your weight - the only culprit could be the risperidone, although I am not sure that this is where the problem lies. I would suggest that you have your fasting insulin done as you could very well be insulin resistant. If this is the case, your doctor will prescribe medication that will help balance your glucose levels and help you to lose weight. Good luck and don't give up hope. If you have access to a swimming pool, try and swim while the ankle is a bit weak, or start walking, even this will help.
