    Re: olanzipine dose

    While I did find olanzipine helpful for anxiety, I had to change to something else as the olnazipine was making me put on weight, which I can't have because of being diabetic.

    Give it a go Greg, that's only a pretty low dose that you're on anyway, but if it helps it's well worth it

    Do let us know how you get on with it

    Re: olanzipine dose

    Auntie..i found when i started my 5 mg at night i had the munches more often.but after a month or so it calmed down.so im hoping if i get the munches again on new increase it calms down again after a short while....i dont think the medication makes you put on weight i think its that fact it makes you more hungry.

    Re: olanzipine dose

    Yes you're right Greg, it is that it makes you more hungry

    I was on a higher dose, and it was making me act robotic at night, I'd find myself just walking to my fridge in search of food and, one night, believe it or not, I was even trying to eat part of a magazine that was on my bedside table I woke up with bits of paper in my mouth and wondered what the heck had happened!!!!!!

    The weight was starting to pile up on me, which I just can't have, as I'm diabetic too, so I was brought off of the olanzipine and put on to quetiapine, which is much better for me and I'm now dieting and loosing the weight

    Hi Greg,

    I take 5mg at night time. My Psych told me not to take it in the day because it has a sedative effect. Does it make you drowsy after taking or during the day? Hope it's helping anyway
