Olanzapine and Fluoxetine HCI Capsules 6 MG/25 MG ## I take symbyax 3/25 and it helps me tremendously but it does cause my Rheumatoid arthritis to flare. I have to take amoxicillin with it to ward off the flares. Does anyone else have these conditions, bipolar and RA? ## This medication is most commonly used to treat depression, and other mental health conditions. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, weight changes, mood swings, and headache. It triggering RA is very unusual. In most cases, when an antibiotic is required, the RA flare has been caused by some type of infection, not a medication. Have you had this checked out by your doctor?

symbyax, any subsitute?

Symbyax works 100% great on me. But SOO DARN expensive. Is there any thing that works AS GOOD BUT 3/4s cheaper? ## Hello, Dawn! How are you? Symbyax contains Olanzapine and Fluoxetine, both of which are available separately as generics, so you may want to check the prices at your pharmacy. It might work out to be cheaper for you to have your doctor prescribe them separately. There is nothing special in the formulation of Symbyax, it just combines the two drugs. This medication may cause side effects, such as nausea, sedation, somnolence, headache, dry mouth and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with?
