1. A solid oral formulation comprising olanzapine, wherein the formulation is coated with a polymer selected from hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose, hydroxyethyl cellulose, methyl
hydroxyethyl cellulose, sodium carboxymethyl cellulose, hydroxypropyl cellulose, polyvinylpyrrolidone, dimethylaminoethyl methacrylate, methyl acrylate acid ester copolymer, ethyl acrylate-methyl methacrylate copolymer, methyl cellulose, and ethyl
2. The formulation of claim 1 wherein the polymer is hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose, hydroxypropyl cellulose, methyl cellulose, or ethyl cellulose.
3. A formulation of claim 2 wherein the polymer is hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose.
4. A formulation of claim 1 wherein the coating is free of propylene glycol.
5. A formulation of claim 4 wherein the bulking agent in the formulation is lactose.
6. A formulation of claim 4 wherein the binder in the formulation is hydroxypropyl cellulose and the disintegrant is crospovidone.
7. A formulation of claim 1 wherein the dry binder in the formulation is microcrystalline cellulose.
8. A formulation of claim 1 wherein the lubricant in the formulation is magnesium stearate.
9. A formulation of claim 3 wherein the hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose coating is further coated with an aqueous dispersion film coat.
10. A formulation of claim 9 wherein the solid formulation is imprinted using an edible ink.
11. A formulation of claim 9 wherein the formulation comprises from about 1 to about 3% w/w olanzapine; from about 69.5 to about 87.5% w/w lactose; from about 3.5 to about 4.5% w/w hydroxypropyl cellulose; from about 4 to about 6% w/w crospovidone; from about 9 to about 11% w/w microcrystalline cellulose; and from about 0.25 to 1% magnesium stearate.
12. A formulation of claim 1 wherein the solid formulation is a tablet.
13. A formulation of claim 12 wherein each tablet provides a 1, 2.5, 5, 7.5, 10, 15, or 20 mg dose of olanzapine.
14. A formulation of claim 1 wherein the solid formulation is in the form of granules.
15. A solid formulation of claim 1 wherein the formulation is for use in treating a condition selected from psychosis, schizophrenia, a schizophriform disorder, mild anxiety, a gastrointestinal disorder, and acute mania.
16. A formulation of claim 12 wherein each tablet provides a 25 mg dose of olanzapine.
17. The formulation of claim 1 wherein the olanzapine is substantially in the form of the Form II polymorph.
18. A process for preparing a formulation of claim 1 comprising high shear aqueous wet granulation with fluid bed drying.
19. The process of claim 18 wherein the olanzapine is substantially in the form of the Form II polymorph.
