Oleanz contains the active ingredient Olanzapine, it is an antipsychotic medications that is also used to treat other forms of mental health issues.

Side effects can include: nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and lethargy.

Rajesh, in that short of a time period, it is likely that this medication has not reached its full effectiveness, yet. No medication can completely work instantly. It generally takes several weeks, before you will see the full effects of it and no, increasing the dosage yourself, without the doctor's approval is not safe. These are very potent medications, so their use has to be closely watched.

If you are really concerned about it, you should contact the doctor and ask what they advise you to do. They may want to raise the dosage or try a different medication.

Are there any other comments or questions?

QAZI, I can't find any information under the name psisufenia or a name for a condition that has those symptoms.

There is nothing, however, in the Olanzapine information that lists it as causing anything like that.

What have her doctors said caused it and what are their recommendations?

My wife met with an accident. She got head injured. Her memory is intact. But she is too agresssive. She abuses every one at home with the worst words when she is irritated. She speaks nicely with friends. I consulted a psychiatrist, he prescribed oleanz tablet. But she is not willing to take the medicine. She is saying that she is normal and says that the tablet has many side effects like she will become fat, face will become ugly, will have older look etc. We tried to convince her many times, but she is adamant and not willing to take the tablet. She only cooks and maintains everything at home. Hence it is not possible to give the tablet without her knowledge. Also there are kids at home. Please advise what to do in this situation. we are having tough day every day.

My daughter is 11 years old and diagnosed with ADHD. At times she becomes hyper. My doctor had suggested Risdone 0.5mg after which she totally became inactive. By looking at her inactiveness, we requested doctor to stop it. After which she became more hyper and it was very difficult to control for a week. Now doctor has suggested to take Oleanz, which too have side effects. Please advise.
