What is Oleanz plus used for? Feeling weak and stressed

What is oleanz plus used for? My wife has been prescribed the medicine by her doctor together with lorazepam MD 0.25 mg and rejunex capsule. She feels drowsy through out the day now but is feeling better now on the weakness and stress front. She used to feel very depressed and lacked energy to move evn prior to taking these drugs. She had low BP (93/43) which has not been monitored this week. Please advise. You could write to me at YYYY@YYYY . Thanks for your feed back.

Dear
Welcome to HCM.
Oleanz plus is anti Psychotic drug.
Mainly used in treatment of Schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
You did not mention the dosage of it.
Feeling drowsy during the course of anti psychotic treatment is quite common.
Low BP can also be associated with these. But management is necessary.
Happy to know that she is improving.
Good wishes

Psychiatrist Dr. Ashish Mittal's  Response
Hello Mr Chaddha,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Public Forum

First it is Lonazep MD 0.25mg, not lorazepam MD.

Oleanz Plus is used for several reasons. In her case it is being used for anxiety and depression. It is good to know that she is improving. Her drowsiness will reduce soon in further follow up and continuation of treatment. Please monitor her BP, so that appropriate step can be taken in follow up to manage it.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Wish you Good Health.

Regards,
Dr. Ashish Kumar Mittal
