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

Hello and welcome to Lybrate. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice. Oliza 2.5 mg tablet is a potent antipsychotic drug. The peak effect of olanzapine (which is the main constituent of oliza 2.5 mg tablet) can be observed after 5-8 hours of oral administration. Use of alcohol is not recommended while you are taking oliza 2.5 mg tablet. You can contact me for further advice and treatment options. Let me know if I can assist you further. Take care.

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.

Hello and welcome to Lybrate. Having musle pain in a single muscle after taking olanzapine is due to myoclonus, which is a condition in which single muscle starts contracting and sometime itvmay be painful. Get urself evaluated by an expert Psychiatrist. There are many other safer antipsychotics option available and proper evaluation of your syptomatology and other factors suitable other medication may be choosen. Thanks and hope it will be helpful for you.

Sir my friend is a avid weed smoker and he has been smoking for more than 10 years. A year back he had almost pshycosis .trigger was lsd. He was lost and acted mad for almost a year and was not smoking weed. He was prescribed oliza 2.5. He became more and more troubled. Then he started smoking weed again. And stopped talking oliza. He was definitely better and was becoming active. But in this lockdown I think he finished up his weed. So 3 weeks ago he stopped talking. His wife was worried and consulted a doctor who said to give oliza again. So she dissolved the pill in meal and gave him. But yesterday he came to know he was given oliza. He instantly said his wife to leave him. And now he is saying he needs weed not medicine. What should we do? I'm very very troubled looking at him as he is my childhood friend.

At the outset, my sincere thanks for being so concerned about your friend. From the available history, he has high support need, so he must be admitted to some mental hospital. He also needs injectible anti-psychotic at present as he is refusing oral drugs. One more problem with oliza (olanzapine) is that, if you crush the tablet, its efficacy is almost gone. So, oliza can not be the solution, instead there are other anti-psychotics that are colourless, odourless and tasteless liquid like water, so can be given with food.

Hello, Olanzipine is known to cause Parkinsons disease like symptoms. but the dose you are taking is minimal. the main thing is to reassess the need for antipsychotics and are they realyy required. Secondly you can try Pacitane

Tolaz 300 is an anti psychotic olanzapine and is used in psychosis like schizophrenia or in cases of depression where augmentation of the anti depressant is required. The first line of treatment in depression is giving an anti depressant.

I am suffering from Schizophrenia for the last 4-5 years. I am taking olimelt 20 mg and sizodon 2 mg for the last 2 years. I am having hallucinations. Should I continue with the same medicines. If not, what medicines should I take?

The medications are fine, but your hallucinations are not controlled. So you need a revision of prescription, consult your psychiatrist. He will be able to help u. If all 4 years the symptoms have not remitted, with adequate dosage, there are medications for resistant hallucinations. All the best.

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.
