Olanzapine weight management with metformin

  1. I am on Clozapine (worse weight gain than olanzapine) but metformin made me sooooo sick. I am trying Ozempic now.

  2. My doctor didn’t even mention this as a possible treatment for the weight gain. Instead they put me on phentermine, which can lead to a cracked out amphetamine like experience. I’m going to bring up metformin in my next appointment.

  3. I am on 5mg olanzapine (2 years) and I also take Metformin (1000mg). It stopped me from gaining more weight. I gained 45 pounds before the Metformin. I had to start taking Trulicity, a once a week injection due to diabetes.
