My 2nd baby is now 3 months old. And this time I took 5mg, then 2.5mg of Olanzapine as a preventative, after having had postpartum psychosis with my 1st born and having been sectioned.
This time has been smooth sailing which is great. But I've gone from size 10 to a big size 14 which is pretty miserable. The same thing (plus some +) happened the first time when I was on olanzapine for a year that time and initially at 10mg then 20mg. The weight did all come off in the end, but for ages despite healthy eating and exercise it went down really really frustratingly slowly. But then a few months later it suddenly just all fell off within about a month. I believe a lot of the weight was water retention (I look puffy and swollen). I just want to get back to my normal self and feel a bit daunted by how potentially tricky it may be. Be good to hear other people's experiences, preferably the more positive ones !! Thanks
