Unfortunetly, Zyprexa has a tendency to make you gain weight, but on the bright side it is one of the best treatments for bipolar disorder. I have been on many meds before and Zyprexa aside from the weight gain has done wonders for me. I try to counteract the weight gain by trying to eat healthy and regular exercise. You should talk to your pdoc about
your concerns, there are other similar meds out their that have minimal to no weight gain associated with them. But talk to your pdoc before crossing Zyprexa off your list.
