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. 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.

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.

Lybrate-user, The medications olanzapine and Clonazepam are prescribed in low doses if there is a renal impairment under the supervision of a psychiatrist and only when the benefits of taking the medications outweigh the risks. If you have anxiety and depression issues you could review how bad the symptoms are and start cognitive behaviour therapy which does not involve medications. If that helps you and your symptoms reduce then medications can be reduced and stopped by the psychiatrist.

I have taken ayurveda medicines and fish oils to increase serotonin, but now psychiatrist (from nimhans) has diagnosed me with bipolar depression, so he prescribed me oleanz plus 20 mg/5 mg tablet for 30 days (one tablet daily at night after food). He also given me a general advice on regular exercise which helps increase serotonin and dopamine. So, my question is…the mechanism of the prescribed drug: oleanz plus tablet is a combination of two medicines: fluoxetine and olanzapine. They work by increasing the activity of certain chemicals called serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine in the brain. These chemicals help relieve the symptoms of bipolar depression. But can I replace the prescribed drug with natural treatments like exercise, meditation/breathing exercises, gratitude, new hobbies like reading good books which naturally increase serotonin and dopamine in the brain? I want to replace it because, according to the psychiatrist, the prescribed drug (oleanz plus 20 mg/5 mg) will work 50% for me and with that if I do regular exercise, it will work more than 50% (but not 100%) I did’t start the medication (the prescribed one) yet… so can I replace it with exercise/fitness/meditation although the mechanism is similar i.e. To increase serotonin? And in past I used to take fish oils/ ayurveda medicines and I stopped it now.

Hi. lybrate-user there are several studies now on nutrional suppliments on brain and how neuro transmitters are being produced or balanced. Particularly omega3, folic acid, minerals like zinc, magnesium etc but a correct diagnosis is primary. Acute management of your problem may need medication also. Also avail psychologists evaluation and counselling. Take care.

My bmi is 20 kgs and need diet olan to reduce weight. Need your help in reducing the weight in a very healthy way.
Its necessary to follow a healthy lifestyle as fat loss is a gradual process. There is no quick fix approach. Following a healthy diet which has optimal amounts of first-class proteins (dairy products, eggs, chicken etc) reduced carbohydrates (white rice, poha etc) & healthy fats (almonds. Walnuts etc) along with a structured​ exercise program that is balanced with weight training and cardio will surely help. Hormonal imbalances that can impede your rate of fat loss. Stay consistent & patient in order to achieve your weight loss goals. Kindly contact us to get customised diet & workout plan.

single medicine is good. oleanz is a good medicine but has chances of producing weight gain, metabolic changes and sedation. If they are not there, it is wise to continue the same. If so, alternates are there. main thing is symptom control with least or no side effects. All the best.

Why did my doctor prescribe me oleanz with my thyroid tablet ?is it ok to have oleanz once in 3 days? He says oleanz is to control the effects of thyroid imbalance if in case it happens. Is it possible or do I have a mental disorder?

You can talk to your doctor and have clarity. On your part, you can make up your mind to lead a healthy lifestyle. A healthy diet (more of natural food along with fruits and vegetables everday) and exercising every day will make you fit and energetic and also improve your overall well-being. Learn Yoga and pranayam which can bring harmony, and rejuvenate your body and mind. You can also add Homeopathy later as it is safe and gentle. You can contact me for further details.
