These outcomes are truly remarkable: improvement by dozens of points on the PANSS, significant weight loss, and better quality of life. There simply is no psychiatric medication available with the power to accomplish those results.

However, all antipsychotic medications, unfortunately, come with a substantial risk of side effects that can worsen quality of life, not the least of which is weight GAIN.
