For me there was no comparison. I gained a HUGE amount of weight on Zyprexa, about 40 lbs. I think I may have gained a couple of pounds on lithium at the beginning.

I had to quit Zyprexa because of the weight gain but have been taking lithium for over 13 years without any problems

I was on lithium very briefly but didn't gain any weight. Zyprexa I gained 100 lbs nearly. It was a miracle med for me but I just couldn't gain weight anymore. I took it for many years too. It just kept piling on. I even tried the zydis and still gained weight. I switched to Seroquel XR and have finally been able to lose weight (probably over 35 lbs now).
