Oleanz (Olanzapine) and Nexito (Escatilopharm) have some sedative properties, but the major issues are dependence and weight gain. Yes you bipolar mood disorder can be cured by this drug and you will have to live with some of the side effects, luckily most of the side effects are self-limiting and are relieved when the medicines are stopped.
