Question: Hi,

I know biperiden is not worthy with olanzapine, but if my mom was prescribed both olanzapine and quetiapine, is biperiden necessary?
It causes a lot of side-effects, the most damaging being constipation, which is dangerous if becomes chronic.

Welcome to health care magic,
I have gone through your query and understand your concern towards side effects of biperidon
Considering her age, I would recommend you to take biperidon with two antipsychotics
Olanzapine may not have much anti Parkinson side effects, but that is not the only situation always as some individuals may respond differently to some drugs
So, I advise you to try to get remedy for its side effects such as constipation, dry mouth by drinking excess water, consuming high fibre diet, if doesn't work, you can also try some laxatives like cremaffin plus syrup etc
So, I would advise you to discuss with your doctor regarding these side effects and get remedy
Hope this information would help you
Feel free to ask any further questions
Thank you
