Brain shrinkage

Posted , 4 users are following.

I have been off and on Zyprexa for 3 years in conjunction with various anti depressants to

treat depression and anxiety.

My main dose was 10mg but I had taken up to 30 mg at one stage for a short period of time.

I am freaking out because today I read today that Olanzapine causes brain shrinkage

Have I irreversibly damaged my brain.

A lot of my depression is being fueled by my feeling of being dumb and no longer being myself.

My doctor says this is a result of the depression but I can't hate to think that the Zyprexa has

has a lot to do with it.

I just find things that I used to do easy I no longer can do and my personality has completely changed.

Do you think Zyprexa can cause cognitive decline?
