Zyprexa-victims. com 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.

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.
