Sras Posted April 28, 2011 Share Posted April 28, 2011 I'm on 20mg fluoxetine and have 0.25mg alprazolam PRN. My pdoc doesn't want me taking the alprazolam and today decided I should take 0.25mg Zyprexa. I got the eating disorder talk and she's concerned about any weight gain, hence the low dose. Is there anyone who hasn't had weight gain issues? This is a major concern as I tend to stop taking things if I gain weight and that doesn't go well. The other option that was mentioned was lithium as I need something that will act as a mood stabiliser but she also thinks I need some form of antipsychotic to control my paranoia. Has anyone else had any luck with Zyprexa as a mood stabiliser and anti psychotic? I've been on Abilify before and mentally I improved but the side effects were debilitating in different ways on different doses. I'm guessing lithium would cause more weight gain than Zyprexa? Getting kind of panicky about the med change as I'm in a really high stress time of my life and can't afford anything interrupting my rountine right now.
