9+ more states still to deal.
The settlement with the feds could top $1 billion.
Eli Lilly has 'promised' a $1.2 billion personal injury settlement with individual claimants like myself who have NOT been paid yet.
In fact, a 2002 company internal memo specifically instructed its sales representatives not to discuss diabetes concerns with U.S. doctors, the newspaper reports. "We will NOT proactively address the diabetes concerns," the Times cites an internal Lilly memo as saying.
Zyprexa remains on the market in the United States and more than 80 other countries.
About 30 state attorneys general have subpoenaed documents detailing Lilly's sales practices for Zyprexa as part of a civil investigation under state consumer protection laws.
I took Zyprexa for 4 years 1996-2000 (before the black box warning) at $250 a month co-pay.I got a shocking BG (blood sugar) of 500 in 2000.My doctors say it WAS the Zyprexa that caused it.I have NO diabetes in my family.
Moreover,I was given it off-label for PTSD.

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.
