I was on 20mg Olanzapine daily for five years and grew from a physically healthy man in to a very large blob, patricularly putting on weight around my middle (The heart attack zone) after some pleading my doctor eventually mentioned Aripiprazole.
After she contacted my psychiatrist I was switched over a month to 10mg Aripiprazole. It has only been a short time, but I feel much better mentally than I ever did on Olanzapine and I am finally losing weight despite still fighting the occasional binge.
What I don't understand is why medical practitioners should head straight to Olanzapine and make no mention of Aripiprazole.
