I am not sure what you mean by 'getting too much over active thyroid medication'? Do you mean that you have an overactive thyroid which is being treated to make it less active, or do you mean that you have an underactive thyroid and are receiving too much Eltroxin or other types of thyroid hormone medication? According to my copy of MIMS, Risperdal can either cause weight gain or loss depending on the patient's individual reaction. With the information at my disposal, I would therefore recommend that you ingest 6300 kJ per day to lose weight. This is the general recommendation for adult women. If you are a man 8400 kJ per day should promote weight loss.
