Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

The symptoms that you mentioned are common side-effects of Olanzapine (Zyprexa). Please, do your best to tolerate the side-effects especially in the beginning of therapy (if you just started taking the medicines) as in some situations the side effects decrease in intensity by time. I strongly advise you not to stop this medicine or skip doses as it is extremely important to stick to its dosage and continue to follow up with your doctor.
