    The anti-psychotic drug Geodon (ziprasidone) has a minimal effect on body weight according to a recently published review paper about the weight gaining potential of anti-psychotic drugs. However, it may cause more gastrointestinal side effects, such as an upset stomach or nausea, than drugs such as Zyprexa (olanzapine).

    Geodon (ziprasidone) is used to treat schizophrenia. It works by decreasing unusually high levels of brain activity.
