As your mother is diabetic, we can not continue olanzapine for long term. We need to change olanzapine to safer antipsychotic like aripiprazole or Amisulpride. Thank you

My wife, 47, is schizophrenic and is on monthly depot inj of tolaz 210 mg. What does it transform into daily dose of oleanz roughly. Her doctor recommends her to switch over to daily oral dose of 5 mg oleanz instead. This seems less dose to me as per direct calculation. Also, I have read that the efficacy ofdepot inj is better over oral dose. Is it advisable to switch to oral medicine? Request advise.

ALLOPATHIC MEDICINES HAVE SEVERE SIDE-EFFECTS. I RECOMMEND A SWITCH TO NEAREST PATANJALI CHIKITSALAYA MEDICINES AS ADVISED PLUS PRANAYAM . IF YOU HELP HER TO PRACTICE ALL THAT IS TAUGHT DAILY ON ASTHA CHANNEL 5.00 TO 7.30 AM. VERY VERY EFFECTIVE- ESP ANULOM-VILOM AND BRAMRI AND UDGIT. YOU WILL GET MIRACULOUS RESULTS FOR FREE AND WITHOUT ADVERSE EFFECTS OF ALLOPATHIC MEDICINES. BUT, MEDICINES ARE DEFINITELY REQUIRED.

Hi, Why do doctor's recommend Loridin Rapitab for pregnant mothers? Please suggest me.
Loridin Rapitab acts as an antihistamine, which tones down the effects of histamine, which produces various symptoms like watery eyes, itching, sneezing and runny nose. Thus, the drug reduces the effects of histamine and its symptoms on the body to a great extent.

Studies have looked at over 2500 babies born to women who took olanzapine during early pregnancy or throughout the pregnancy. These studies suggest that olanzapine use during pregnancy is unlikely to increase the chance of birth defects above the background risk. Before planning pregnancy understand and accept higher risks to both mother and baby in view of age. Also some reports, vaccinations and supplements are required prior to planning pregnancy.

Oleanz is ok, but lonazep in such high dose for years together is not advisable as it is a benzodiazepine and may carry unwanted side effects. Discuss with your psychiatrist and take sedative, non addictive medications and for constipation there are also non addictive ways to overcome, which your psychiatrist will tell.
