I have been on lithium but now haldol for bipolar with mania and schizoaffective. Was on zyprexa in past and just lost all the weight I gained from it.
It is not listed as a possible side effect.
With my experience I didn't gain weight I lost weight and loss off appetite. Hope my experience give you an idea about weight gain.
The good news is that weight gain would not be typical with this med :)
Huge weight gain with zyprexa, all you want to do is eat. (I think it blocks the neurotransmitter in brain that tells you your full.) Switched to haldol and eating normal and weight is dropping off.
