> I'm scared of talking zyprexa because of the weight gain side effect. My Doc has told me the same thing about the two meds together. He said zyprexa makes you fat he doesn't want me to take that unless it was the last resort. Thanks for the advise.

I had the exact same fear, however I did end up taking a small dose of Zyprexa and did not gain weight. I was starting to get extremely manic (after three months of severe depression) I had several sleepless nights and severe agitation.

Anyway, I felt better immediately on Zyprexa (combined with Lexapro, which I have been on for over six months). However after about two weeks my hands started trembling so bad every morning that I had to stop taking it. Now I take Zonnegram in conjunction with Lexapro, and I have not felt this good in years! I wouldn't be afraid to try the Zyprexa just because of weight gain.

Good Luck!
