Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
Olenzapine is a very good drug.
I would suggest you continue with that itself.
Why dont you try doing exercise and follow a proper diet plan for weight loss.
That will be better. And also, we cannot change any medications in such conditions without examining you in person.
Kindly consult a psychiatrist in person for further evaluation and management.
Best regards.
Dr. Anil kumar jain.
