Figure 2: Twenty-four week risperidone treatment increased mice weight and food intake. (a) Effect of risperidone on weight gain in female mice. Differences between both groups appeared significant after 7 weeks of treatment and remained significant at the end of the experiment (24 weeks: control (∘)  g versus risperidone (•)  g; , ). (b) Effect of risperidone on food intake. Risperidone treatment increased food intake after 13 weeks (Control:  g/day/mouse versus Risperidone:  g/day/mouse ; ).
