It's not guaranteed that you'll gain more weight on 10mg vs 5mg,  but it is possible.....It could depend on some individual factors, such as:

........What other meds you're taking with it

.........Gender (women are more likely to gain)

.........Diet and exercise (do you eat a low calorie/low carb diet, and get regular exercise?)

Is your doc recommending 10mg now, instead of 5mg?

I have no personal experience with Zyprexa, so hopefully some other members who have taken it will reply soon.......As a side note, I have tried Seroquel--it made me gain weight, so I had to stop it and try another option.......Right now I'm on Abilify 15mg, and so far, have not gained any weight on it.
