hi. olanzapine can be quite helpful, but the weight gain, metabolic problems (even in the absence of weight gain, according to one former psychiatrist...), plus typical tranquilizer adverse effects...

are very real, should be discussed before and during treatment. anyway...

some people are prescribed metformin w/ olanzapine. its a type II diabetes mitigate metabolic problems, weight gain. not a perfect solution, but it does work for some people. I read an 'alternative medicine' review that suggested there's some data supporting relatively high dose (1200mgs/day) alpha lipoic acid in people on 'atypicals,' to reduce the metabolic risks.

I would think/assume that low to mid dosage olanzapine might help with MAOI treatment, so in that sense it would (possibly?) make the MAOI experience "better," maybe. back in the day, Parnate was often balanced out with neuroleptics (stelazine appears to have been a favorite) and/or sedatives. just...a random, off The Google example.

have you had an AIMS test?

hope this helps. :-)
