Default Re: Stopping anti-psychotics and weight loss

Olanzapine scares the crap out of me ó with my host of physical disorders I canít take the stuff. From what Iíve read it can cause weight gain or weight loss.

I donít know if youíll lose weight if you cease taking your meds. I believe that if I were you, I would discuss your concerns with your doctor before you stop taking your meds. S/he has you on an antipsychotic for a reason.

Good luck.
