lildropofsunshine Posted July 13, 2011 Share Posted July 13, 2011 I've been on Zyprexa for just under a month now, and I've already gained 10lbs which is a lot on my little frame. I hate it, and am worried that it will continue. I'm active (I walk/run about 3 miles at least 3 or 4 days a week), so the weight gain isn't from a sedentary lifestyle. My pdoc is on vacation until early August, but when I called the office they suggested I come in and see one of the nurse practitioners and maybe I'll have to switch meds. That's the last thing I want to do because a) switching meds sucks and b) other than the weight gain, I'm extremely happy with Zyprexa! It's the first med that I've felt this way about. I'm going in tomorrow, and we'll see what happens... If I am going to switch, do you guys know what meds are similar to Zyprexa but cause less weight gain? I've heard Zyprexa Zydis supposedly is good since it causes less weight gain than regular Zyprexa. I've also heard that Geodon is a good med for some and is weight neutral... I just hate the whole med change thing! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
