I am Daniel Haszard took Eli Lilly zyprexa 4 years for PTSD didn't do me any good made me gain weight and gave me diabetes.The zyprexa cost $250.00 a month all during that time too.

Only 9 percent of adult Americans think the pharmaceutical industry can be trusted right around the same rating as big tobacco.

Zyprexa, which is used for the treatment of psychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, accounted for 32% of Eli Lilly's $14.6 billion revenue last year.

Zyprexa is the product name for Olanzapine,it is Lilly's top selling drug.It was approved by the FDA in 1996 ,an 'atypical' antipsychotic a newer class of drugs without the motor side effects of the older Thorazine.Zyprexa has been linked to causing diabetes and pancreatitis.

Did you know that Lilly made nearly $3 billion last year on diabetic meds, Actos,Humulin and Byetta?
Yes! They sell a drug that causes diabetes and then turn a profit on the drugs that treat the condition that they caused in the first place!

I was prescribed Zyprexa from 1996 until 2000.
In early 2000 i was shocked to have an A1C test result of 13.9 (normal is 4-6) I have no history of diabetes in my family.

Why would any idiot take medication for 4 years if it was not doing you any good. I guess you want a slice of the Lilly pie.
They are lined up so jump in with them....

Eli Lilly execs (lawyers) are being penny wise dollar foolish.

I sent them 3 certified letters in a 4 month span demanding a very fair compensation for my years of zyprexa damage a worthless snake oil that i payed for out of my own pocket made me sleep all the time and gave me diabetes.

Do a google keyword search of "Daniel Haszard zyprexa results are over 35,000 pages up.

I am costing them and giving them a run for their money.

Hey! They put up a $700 million dollar zyprexa settlement fund have given over $100 million to LAWYERS and i don't hear from them when i'm the one defrauded.

They are in deep bleep mostly because of the off label issue ("viva zyprexa") I took it for PTSD i never heard voices it was all wrong from the get go.

I am just getting warmed up!~Daniel Haszard zyprexa-victims.com

Even though I knew Lilly had secret, damning documents, I hadn't seen them until Alex Berenson revealed them in his New York Times stories. They caused me great turmoil. To think that Lilly considered revealing what they knew about diabetes (and, I presume, hyperglycemia and death - what my beloved son died of). If they had followed their ethics instead of their pocketbook, my son would still be alive.

I hope a federal criminal court is the result and instead of sitting around the fire in their fancy mansions, they will be sitting behind bars. This is my Christmas wish.

I took Klonopin and Paxil for 15 years to treat my anxiety disorder. I had to detox from the Klonopin this past spring. I got off the Klonopin and switched my Paxil to Lexapro (sex side effect issue). I am also a recovering alcoholic. My doctor did not want me on Benzo's anymore (says it increased alcohol cravings). I stayed on Lexapro only for 9 months, but my anxiety came back strong on just the Lexapro alone. I almost resorted to taking Xanax before I switched doctors. My new doc gave Zyprexa from http://z-olanzapine.com a chance. I am on my 7th day and I haven't felt this "normal" in 5 years. I take 5mgs at night and it has ended the "chatter" in my head, and removed my anxiety. Great medicine so far.

Naturally, I am skeptical of everything online. http://z-olanzapine.com is legitimate. I placed my first order for the smallest amount possible. It arrived sooner than expected. I didn't pay the extra money for speedy air mail. I placed another order that was much larger and it came right on time. I will definitely use this company again for even larger orders now that I trust them. They also give you discounts every time you place an order which is cool. One thing to keep in mind is if you place a larger order, they will send half in one shipment, and then the other half after that to avoid customs scrutinizing your package. I am very happy, I no longer need to pay tons of money to see a doctor and therapist (and have them tell me a bunch of stuff I already know) in order to get my medication.
