Eli Lilly Zyprexa RICO Lawsuit
"Through a complex series of illegal rackets and lies, Eli Lilly drug company built a multi-billion dollar drug enterprise at the expense of taxpayers, consumers and patient lives".
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.
Zyprexa qualifies for a MedGuide warning:
(1) The labeling would definitely help prevent serious adverse events;
(2) Few patients would be willing to take the drug and risk developing diabetes given that numerous studies have shown Zyprexa to be no more effective than the older class of antipsychotics that do not cause diabetes; and
(3) Most patients on Zyprexa would learn that the drug is not FDA approved to treat the condition they have.

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.

I'd hate to see the gang's tupperware turn around with all the pill bottles.
Whee. They are mad I'm young enough to not need meds and well enough too.
Vitamins, water, healthy food. That's my regimen.
