From what I know, Glucophage (also known as Metformin) is prescribed for type II diabetes and it lowers blood insulin levels. Zyprexa is known to raise insulin levels so the Glucophage works to counteract the effects of the zyprexa. Since starting the Glucophage, I haven't gained more than five pounds so it does seem to help with curbing the appetite. I was also on Remeron a few years back and had to stop because of the horrible munchies I would get after 1/2 hour of taking it. You may want to talk to your doctor about Glucophage for med-induced weight gain.
