Olanzapine (Zyprexa) is one of the older antipsychotics and is notorious for weight gain:
"Very common (10% or more of users): Weight gain/increased weight greater than/equal to 7% of baseline body weight (up to 89.4% of users)"
It can also cause many other serious side effects and you should do some research before taking this drug:
Personally, I gained over 25lbs! I'm sorry to sound so negative about this medication... which I'm usually not about others..but I think there are much safer options than olanzapine.
