Re: Neuroleptic weight gain dose dependend? Linearly?

just jumping in here...

i don't think it is a linear relationship. a former psychiatrist told me she had given up issuing new prescriptions for olanzapine, mainly because she'd seen even low doses cause serious problems. frightening tidbit: she told me that she'd seen zyprexa cause metabolic disorders, even without massive weight gain. --stay up on your lab work, please--

all of the tranquilizers are associated with at least a bit of weight gain, except maybe moban and geodon, both of which have other, serious adverse effects for people/patients to contend with, of course.

have you ever been given a trial of the newer d2 partial agonists? they're -not- wonder drugs or anything, but maybe worth a shot, perhaps?
