Olanzapine and IBS


Recommended Posts

Now, after much research I believe my bowel issues, IBS-C, and inability to lose weight plus tremors in my hands may be due to the Olanzapine 5 mg I take. 
I don’t want to try another medication for anxiety. Tired of new meds. 
I think I can deal with the IBS-C. Started a stool softener and it helps. Lots of water too. 
Has anyone else had IBS-C due to medications? Wondering what others have done?

Olanzapine is an anti-psychotic medication that might actually cause further constipation. It also has a risk for developing tardive dyskinesia if you have been on it for a long time. I'm not sure if it can produce tremors beyond the face and mouth. It can also be used for anxiety.

I would talk to your doctor and mention your side effects.
