Question: I have been prescribed 5mg tablets of Olanzapine and am also taking: 100mgs Doxepin, 1mg Lorazepam and 40mgs of Atorvastatin. I am concerned that it is inappropriate that I should be taking 5mg of Olanzapine daily with the other drugs.

No drug interactions.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Welcome to HCM.
I can understand your concerns.

There is no drug interaction between olanzapine and other drugs you are taking.

You must be taking atorvastatin for hyperlipidemia.
Olanzapine can cause hyperlipidemia.
So, keep a regular check on your lipid profile.

Please discuss this issue with your treating doctor.
