    Mirtazapine and Olanzapine

    I take 30 mg Mirtazapine and 10-20mg Olanzapine. Just curious if anyone else has tried this combo and was able to loose weight. Looking for suggestions and ideas. These 2 drugs have helped me greatly just the weight is scary lol. I hear it will plateau but shoot no luck yet.

    Looking for others with similar stories with some sucess? They are thinking of changing me to resperidone but I am too nervous right now.

    Mirtazapine is notorious for usually helping people put on weight not loose it!

    The 2 drugs saved my life (I tried going half on Olanzapine) and was told by my dr to go back to 20 (I became an ocd/anxiety wreck. Still recovering)

    I hope to one day have a psychiatrist.I had one lined up but my anxiety messed that up. I acted out and said I want a female one and that I would be more comfortable. When I realized what I did I tried to take it back but it was too late. My Sleep Dr is trying his best to help me cope thankfully. I was at my ends for the past couple of weeks, Wanting to give up I can't it's not in my blood no matter how much of a thought that is.

    dr said we can go from 20mg olanzapine to a higher dose if needed. I am still anxious and full of ocd but capable of somewhat talking myself down. Hard but I am trying repeating things like "it's ok dont worry" and "this is just anxiety it is not a actual problem"

    Taking meds at ineffective doses is counter-productive, imo. The point of taking these meds is to banish almost all anxiety (or depression) to allow you to function 'normally'. White-knuckling through anxiety just reinforces it.
