Changed my meds

I was taking Symbyax but I've gained over 20 pounds and I slept over 10 hours a night and was still tired so I talked with my doctor today and he put me on a low dose of zyprexa and prozac. Does anyone else take these meds? Would like to know how well it works.

Re: Changed my meds

The wife had good and bad results with Zyprexa. The weight gain was the bad. However, the med worked well for her.
God Bless

Re: Changed my meds

I took my first dose last night and I felt so much better today so I'm hoping it will stay that way. I don't really want to gain anymore weight but I would rather feel like I do than lose weight.
