Similar to zyprexa

Can anyone please tell me what is similar to zyprexa and does not cause weight gain? Also, can it be taken alone if the main symptom is irritability(mania)?

Abilify (aripiprazole)
Clozaril (clozapine)
Geodon (ziprasidone)
Remeron (mirtazepine)
Risperdal (risperidone)
Seroquel (quetiapine)
Zyprexa (olanzapine)

Hope this helps!

Re: Similar to zyprexa

Thanks mudhound! And these will not cause weight gain? Can one of these be taken alone and stabilize moods? Thanks for any responses!

Geodon doesn't typically cause weight gain, it might cause other problems, but not weight gain. Find the Someone posted on Geodon and panic attacks? thread posted by pferg101 for details on the other problems. I think it's on page 2

Re: Similar to zyprexa

Thanks so much! I read the thread and that helped me....I wouldn't ask for something that makes anxiety/panic worse! Does the seroquel make you gain weight? Is that okay for anxiety?
I would like to say that everyone on this board is so friendly and helpful. Everytime I come hear, I know I will get an honest answer from everyone.
Thanks again!

Re: Similar to zyprexa

I haven't had ANY anxiety problems with seroquel. The weight gain I'm not so sure about. I did gain weight while on seroquel but it could be a coincidence, I did eat nothing but cake, cookies, and pie for a month. Did seroquel make me crave these things and thusly indirectly cause weight gain? Who knows. I won't rule out anything at this point. But if you are strong of will and resistent to cravings, it could be the med for you! I really love seroquel. I've written songs about its glory. I sleep like a rock, I don't cycle, I'm not depressed, I'm not manic. I'm just fat. And that I can live with!
