Black Star News, NY -
Eli Lily's role in distributing a drug called Zyprexa. Seems that the company knew about the dangerous side ...
(....Now Eli Lilly's offering her $2,500.00, her share of a class action suit, a pittance when compared to the complications from type one diabetes that she contracted as a result of taking this drug.
And The New York Times calls me "angry" for taking on the subject of corruption in the pharmaceutical industry?
Also, what am I supposed to make of a report that dangerous anti-psychotic drugs are prescribed to Black patients suffering from mental illness while white patients are steered into talk therapy...)

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.
