Thanks for writing to Health Care Magic
Respiridone is known to cause elevated prolactin levels. Periods stopped for the same reason. Your wife has been put on Olanzapine
then. Unfortunately, though this is a good drug rarely causes weight gain and diabetes. It also causes a lot of sedation. When your wife developed diabetes your doctor has changed the medication to Haloperidol
. Haloperidol is a very potent (powerful) antipsychotic
and this could be the possible cause of her tiredness. Psychosis is not caused by harmones/menopause. But with the medications she is on there can be amenorrhea
i.e periods can stop. The problem may be tackled by using drugs like Aripiprazole
, Asenapine, and several others which donot cause changes in weight/affect diabetes or cause changes in prolactin levels affecting menstrual cycle. Discuss about these medications with your doctor.
Hope this helps you
