Possibly more so with higher doses. Brain volume reduction may be more a consequence of dopamine blockade (dopamine being involved in neurogenesis and plasticity). However, I haven't seen similar studies in humans. I remember reading a study suggesting a volume increase in patients taking olanzapine. If you don't need an antipsychotic, I would recommend not taking one. There are alternatives to taking antipsychotics i.e. for anxiety and/or mood stability. If you need one, take it in the lowest dose needed.
