Olanzapine is an atypical antipsychotic medication. This medication is prescribed in order to eliminate symptoms of schizophrenia such as delusions, hallucinations and disorganized thinking. The medication changes the chemical composition of the brain in order to eliminate these problems. It can also be used to control the manic phase of bipolar disorder.

Side Effects/Warnings

Patients who suffer from age-related psychotic dementia should not take this medication. Elderly patients who take antipsychotic medications are more likely to suffer from fatal diseases, especially heart attacks and pneumonia.

This medication causes physical dependence because it changes the chemical composition of the brain. Suddenly stopping the medication can cause serious health complications such as seizures, heart attacks and high blood pressure as well as a return of psychiatric symptoms. Withdraw gradually from this medication in accordance with your doctor’s orders if you want to stop taking it.
