When I was on Invega and Risperdal, I had a food problem. On Invega I was always hungry and ate a lot. On Risperdal I couldn’t pass a plate of sweets without eating all of them like some hyperactive Cookie Monster. OM NOM NOM TWO DOZEN COOKIES AT ONCE NOM.
This week I’ve had a normal appetite. Like, I skipped dessert at dinnertime because I didn’t feel like having any. And all night there have been freshly baked cookies on the kitchen counter and I haven’t even been tempted.
The only thing I have to watch for is that, if I don’t go to bed immediately after taking the Saphris, I will go on a short, half-asleep binge of whatever munchies are at hand. And that’s pretty easy to avoid. Just go to bed.
I may actually get to lose some weight on this medication. Fuck yeah. *fingers crossed*
