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. Bangalore.
