We previously investigated leptin levels in antipsychotic-induced weight gain and found that atypical antipsychotic, especially clozapine and olanzapine-induced weight gain is related to increased levels of leptin. It has been suggested that nitric oxide (NO) is a potential regulator of leptin-induced lipolysis. To explore the pathophysiology of weight gain during atypical antipsychotic treatment, we planned to investigate olanzapine's influence on leptin and NO levels and weight gain. The… CONTINUE READING
