Hello and welcome to the forum,

Your Dr/psychiatrist would be the best person to talk to. My husband tans really easily and I've not noticed any difference when on Olanzapine or Aripiprazole, but then different things affect different people differently. There's other factors to consider as all medications have some potential side effects and some work more effectively than others for certain people.
