Eli Lilly Zyprexa saga
The use of powerful antipsychotic drugs has increased in children as young as three years old. Weight gain, increases in triglyceride levels and associated risks for diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
The average weight gain (adults) over the 12 week study period was the highest for Zyprexa—17 pounds. You’d be hard pressed to gain that kind of weight sport-eating your way through the holidays.
One in 145 adults died in clinical trials of those taking the antipsychotic drugs Zyprexa. This is Lilly's # 1 product over $ 4 billion year sales,moreover Lilly also make billions on drugs that treat the diabetes often that has been caused by the zyprexa!
Only 9 percent of adult Americans think the pharmaceutical industry can be trusted right around the same rating as big tobacco. No Wonder!

Eli Lilly Zyprexa Settlement Stonewalling
http://1url.com/0vi 6 years on line anniversary promoting activism awareness of Eli Lilly Zyprexa
I am a living example of Zyprexa gone/done wrong was given it 1996-2000 off-label for PTSD got sudden high blood sugar A1C 14.7 in January 2000.The stuff was worthless for my condition PTSD and cost me thousands in co-pays gave me diabetes.
Eli Lilly has made $40 billion on Zyprexa and it was way oversold and caused diabetes and in some cases sudden death.
Zyprexa was pushed by Lilly Drug Reps
They called it the "VIVA ZYPREXA" campaign to off label market Eli Lilly Zyprexa as a fix for unapproved usage.
Zyprexa (Olanzapine) is known as an atypical antipsychotic It's mechanism of action is thought to be that it increases levels of serotonin and dopamine. It's chemical name is thienobenzodiazepine although is not a benzo like Valium (Diazepam).
One of it's well known major side effects is weight gain which is why it is sometimes favored for those with eating disorders (which would be an off label use)
Doctors are at liberty prescribe drugs 'off label' like Zyprexa which is only FDA approved for schizophrenia and bipolar.They can give it or just about any drug for conditions other than what the drug was tested for.The doctors don't realize that Zyprexa is very addictive once a dependence has been built up and withdrawal is wicked.
I took it 1996-2000 for PTSD and it was worthless for my symptoms and gave me diabetes with an A1C of 13.9 normal blood sugar is 4
I had to get off it and it took me two months of horrible insomnia,I did not sleep for weeks.
So,be warned Zyprexa is addictive,I think worst than nicotine and don't go off it unless you do so gradually under a doctor's care.
Eli Lilly Stalling Zyprexa claims
Lilly's (NOW up to $4.6 billion) Zyprexa settlement payout is being stonewalled. 8 Lilly employees who are supposed 'whistle-blowers' are getting $ 10 million each the real victims like me are being ignored.

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.
