Re: Help! I'm turning into Nutty Professor on Zyp

I've only read about this, so no first hand knowledge, but Zyprexa has been associated with insulin resistance, and some doctors are using Glucophage -- a drug used to treat Type II diabetes -- to mitigate the weight gain. Glucophage is a serious drug, and I hope your doctor would ask for something like a food diary or a blood glucose test of some sort. (Whether a home diary of food and blood sugar, glucose tolerance test, or A1c -- just something to show that it's not just changes to eating habits.)

This is a "talk to your doctor, for info on your situation" but the drug is associated with weight gain, so it's likely that you're not channeling Eddie Murphy.

Best luck, and do update on what happens. You'd be helping a lot of other people by doing so.
