Does Geodon affect weight?

Since decreasing my dose I've lost 3 lbs in a week. I didn't really need to lose so I hope it stops. It's weird because I didn't think I gained weight while taking it.

It was working for me too but I have to go off of it because I got Tardive Dyskenesia. I'm having a hard time tapering it down :(

I didn't notice any weight gain or loss while on Geodon.

My psych nurse told me there is a 50/50 chance of gaining no more than 30 lbs. on Geodon.

Wish I could help but I have not taken it.  I would check out the webmd website though.  It is really good for listing all of the possible side effects of medicines.
