Common Side Effects of Symbyax

Symbyax® is a medication combining the antidepressant fluoxetine (Prozac®) and the antipsychotic olanzapine (Zyprexa®). Doctors use Symbyax to treat the symptoms and signs of bipolar disorder and treatment-resistant depression.1 However, the medication’s side effects can sometimes be troublesome.

Side effects

Because this medication combines two different types of drugs, it has many potential side effects. Some of them can be quite severe. Common side effects include:2

  • Tiredness
  • Dry mouth
  • Increased appetite
  • Excessive sleeping
  • Swelling of hands and feet
  • Tremors
  • Blurred vision
  • Drowsiness

If these effects occur while you are taking the medication, you should inform your doctor.

Legal considerations

If taking Symbyax has caused serious problems for either you or a loved one, you can contact a personal injury attorney. You may seek compensation from your medical provider or from the manufacturer of the medication.
