Fluoxetine is a propylamine derivative, selective reverse inhibitors
seizure of serotonin. Fluoxetine, metabolized to norfluoxetine, selectively blocks the reuptake of serotonin in the brain, enhancing the action of serotonin on 5HT1A autoreceptors.
Olanzapine is an antipsychotic (neuroleptic). Olanzapine eliminates the productive symptoms of psychosis (hallucinations, delusions, thought disorders, suspicion, hostility), smooths out negative symptoms (social and emotional autism, speech poverty, introversion).

Olanzapine corrects mental and behavioral disorders and relieves agitation in patients with mental disorders.
