Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
Weight gain and irregular periods
could be side effects of Olanzapine
. If these side effects are causing significant problems, then other anti-psychotic medication
can be considered. There are other medication which do not have these particular side effects, but this treatment decision has to be taken after carefully weighing the benefits and risks due to the medication. So, please discuss further options with her psychiatrist
. Regular exercise and diet control are also important to be followed, especially when on anti-psychotic medication.
Wish you all the best.
