Yes, just what fat kids/people need...another excuse as to why the 'f' they are fat. Guess the 'thyroid' excuse was getting old.

Eli Lilly sells a drug {ZYPREXA} that can cause diabetes and then turn a profit on the drugs that treat the condition that they may have caused in the first place!

Eli Lilly has made $38 billion on Zyprexa and it was way oversold and caused diabetes and in some cases sudden death.
Eli Lilly has received a huge criminal fine over their Zyprexa cash cow,add it all up comes to $4.6 billion, in Zyprexa settlements,fines,litigation.

Addictive Zyprexa was pushed by Lilly Drug Reps.
They called it the "Five at Five" (5 mg at 5 pm to keep nursing home patients subdued and sleepy) and "VIVA ZYPREXA" (Zyprexa for everybody) campaigns to off label market Eli Lilly Zyprexa as a fix for unapproved usage.
Eli Lilly is 'reaping the whirlwind' for aggressive marketing of Zyprexa that has caused suffering and deaths.
There must be millions out there harmed by this drug.
Did you know that Lilly made $ billions last year on diabetic meds, Actos,Humulin and Byetta?

Yes! They sell a drug that can cause diabetes and then turn a profit on the drugs that treat the condition that they may have caused in the first place!

Everyone who takes anti-psychotic drugs gains weight, it goes with the territory. Bi-polar kids? Schizophrenic kids? Borderline kids? I don't think so. They just don't fit the diagnostic criteria. All that is being presented to docs are kids who no longer are allowed to run around outside and play, do household chores, study and do homework, and interact with their friends other than in structured sports. As someone mentioned above, all kids do today is sit in front of a TV, or computer, or Wii. They are fat because their parents give them junk food because it's faster and easier than preparing real food. It's not the kids that have the problems, it's the parents.

The newer antipsychotic medications prescibed slows down the childs motility of the gastointestinal tract.Of course it causes weight gain and a host of other problems that then can also be treated with a menagerie of other medications.Yet what is important is that the teacher reports your child is sitting quietly in class. Children can benefit from these drugs though they should not be used as chemical restraints for the convenience of parents and schools of which is occuring with these medications.

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.

Of course they..how do you think our insurance driven health care system lowered the censuses in all the psychiatric centers in the 90s.....they shoveled handfuls of pschotopics down those patients throats ...created systemic illnesses and premature deaths.......only in America....

Have you tried yoga? Meditation?Why don't you become proactive in your own healthcare instead of relying on a pill for a fix...while you sound like a pharmaceutical commercial...people are being brainwashed by pharmaceuticals to provide a pill as the cure all....

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.
