Hallo all, I am currently taking Olanzapine 5mg (Zyprexa) for anxiety as a component of depression and following a bout of Major Depression. I am not Bipolar, just plain old Unipolar but with pretty bad anxiety/panic. I am also on 150mg of Venlafaxine for the depression with partial success.
My question is this, which atypical antipsychotic in users experiences, is best for avoiding weight gain yet is beneficial for GAD? I have never tried Quetiapine or Risperidone or Ziprasidone or Aripiprazole and am interested in knowing something of the differences between their side effect profiles.
