This is Dr. David
this is good information for you about olanzapine and autism
"There is some very limited research evidence to suggest that olanzapine may be beneficial for the short term treatment of significant problems faced by people on the autism spectrum, including hyperactivity, aggression, and self-injurious behaviours.
However there are many potential side effects, especially significant weight gain in all who take it, as well as increased appetite and increased drowsiness in some. The implications of these side effects are unknown. For these reasons, it is important to use the lowest effective dose"
olanzapine doesn't tend to cause these symptoms of very soft stool, throwing up and choking.
he could be having bowel allergies or sensitivities to the foods he is eating.
he could be having excessive stomach acid from foods or acid reflux which can cause him to throw up and choke.
he may need to change his diet to avoid foods which worsen stomach acid
he may benefit from a stomach acid reducer like maalox or mylanta or zantac to help decrease stomach acid.
talk to his doctor about these issues and see if they may help.
