Zyprexa for Alzheimer's related agitation

My CC (chief complaint) against Eli Lilly's Zyprexa is it has a TEN TIMES greater incident of causing type two diabetes.

As regards giving it to someone who is terminally ill with late stage Alzheimer's related agitation and aggression i have less problem.

I think (and it's just my opinion) that these 'anti-psychotics' are ineffective for many mental illnesses all they do for most patients is make you sleep so that your aggression is 'turned off'.

For some who have hallucinations they are effective.They gave it to me for PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) and it had the paradoxical effect of making me worst,because you can't give anti-aggression drugs to patients who are hyper vigilant from PTSD.

ZYPREXA should be taken off the market. It takes away your thoughts your feelings the ability to think and most of all your soul. Do not see any need for this drug on any human for any reason.

I have used for about 3 years and find their products to be reliable and speedily delivered. The Support team are very promt and helpful in solving any issues that arise,caused by my errors not the company's. I was a little sceptical initially about buying generic products rather than brand names. However, the Mens' Health products I have bought have been equally as efficatious as the brand names at a fraction of the cost.

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 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.
