Asenapine: More Data
Olanzapine (Zyprexa) may be better tolerated and more efficacious for patients with bipolar I disorder than asenapine (Saphris).

After a large trial found a higher frequency of adverse cardiovascular events in sibutramine- versus placebo-treated patients, this "diet pill" was withdrawn from the US market.

Antidepressants and Weight Gain
While some antidepressants have no significant effect on body weight, many may cause weight gain or loss during short- or long-term treatment.
