Olanzapine

I'm currently on Olanzapine (only 5mg this time) and it's by far the best medication I've been on. It really does work for me. Nothing else other than Clonazepam seems to help. However, the weight gain in particular and the lethargy is taking it's toll on me. Does anyone have any advice? I'm seriously considering coming off it again due to the weight issues. But if I do I know it will end in disaster. I'm in a no win situation. Any advice would be much appreciated.

I've had a major issue with weight gain due to clozapine. I have considered coming off it due to the weight gain.
It's not easy but I'm losing weight now with a healthy diet and exercise.
Weight can be changed!



I'm fine! Totally fine. I don't know why it's coming out all loud and squeaky, 'cause really, I'm fine!


Who else is fine?!?!?

Try keeping lots of sugary fruits in the fridge for when the cravings kick in, i wouldn't suggest coming off the medicine if its helping you.

Weight doesn't have to be permanent.
