Long lasting Zyprexa? Lilly needs to get a grip on issues with it's original formula.

About 30 state attorneys general have subpoenaed documents detailing Lilly's sales practices for Zyprexa as part of a civil investigation under state consumer protection laws.

All those investigations are because people gained some weight while on Zyprexa. An average of like 10 pounds. Yes some gained more, but it IS for people with depression. The other part was off-label uses that weren't approved. They can mention those in passing to doctors, but not advertise them heavily or mewntion them to consumers. A lot of drug companies used to do that though.

Really, I think the 98.7 percent not affected by sleepiness ould greatly prefer to not have delusions or voices in their heads.

I've visited your website, and despite your statement above about wanting Lilly to correct it's medication, it appears that all you really want it to be paid off.

What was it you wrote? Something along the lines of, "It would be in Eli Lilly's best interest to settle..."

Money, money, money...You are no better than those you claim to be fighting.

This drug is not for "depression", but is indicated for bipolar 1 (mania). It is mostly used to treat schizophrenia. If you look at the studies, you will see that it was tested on patients with a DSM 3 criteria for bipolar 1. Manic Depressive Illness is Bipolar Disorder 1 or 2, with variations.

Look up olanzapine in the united States Patent website, uspto.gov Olanzapine is listed as an anesthetic agent when used along with an opioid.

"Surprisingly, we have discovered that olanzapine can be particularly useful as an anesthetic when used in combination with one or more opioid compounds. More specifically, the invention provides a method of providing anesthesia in a mammal using olanzapine in combination with an opioid to provide such anesthetic effect."

Long acting "antipsychotics are for depression - they are the most effective way of causing severe depression. Getting out of bed is torture - except to raid the refrigerator. Only 1.3% effected by sleepiness? Seroquel studies show 58% suffer from sleepiness and lethargy, and those numbers always understate the situation. You are one of the sheep that believe the mountain of deception built by big pharma over the last 55 years about their medications.

The major tranquilizers are definetely not "antipsychotics" that stop delusions and hallucinations, you just sleep all the time and are too tired to respond to voices in your head. Try injectable Prolixin and Seroquel, and when you wake up a few months later, then tell me that this garbage doesn't cause sleepiness.

What about those people that will be burdened with heavy expenses of Diabetes and the problems of the disease like Glaucoma, neuropathy or have to have there feet cutoff. What about Diabetic heart attacks, Kidney and liver disease because of Zyprexa. Further there is no test for chemical imbalance of the brain according to the American Psychiatric Association and their is no medical model for mental illness. Another words, if a Orthopedic surgeon was to operate on your leg without a x-ray he would be mowing lawns the next day.

With Psychiatry and psychotropic drugs there is no test. They just prescribe at a guess to a made to order mental illness. Mental health is political and not with evidence based medicine and the drug is too damaging to human life.

Not a personal attack, just trying to figure out where you are coming from.

Now that you have pointedly stated that it IS all about money, kindly stop portraying yourself as crusader for the little guy against the big, bad Eli Lilly.

Eli Lilly can't take back and undo the diabetes they have given us with their little pill zyprexa. Therefore, their pockets are the only thing we can hurt and from the size of the payouts, we aren't even doing that. Let someone give you diabetes and we'll hear you holler. It has nothing to do with greed, it has everything to do with eli lillys' deeds.

Yes, it is about greed. How much will it cost to cure diabetes in a person who developed it in conjunction with Zyprexa? Anwser: All the money in the world won't cure it.

None of the lawsuits filed have demanded that Lilly reformulate their medication, or demanded that it be removed from the market. Instead, these lawsuits are all screaming, "PAY ME AND I'LL GO AWAY QUIETLY!!!"

Yes, my dear, sweet, and oh, so pathetically naive child, it is about the money and greed.

They go away quietly because, it seems, in every lawsuit they are required to sign a gag order that they will not talk to anybody about the amount they received or their case. How is that for greed and control? What are they afraid of? talk about greed, Eli Lilly and Company is stuffed with it.

Wow where did you come from? I wonder if it was you who developed diabetes, would you be saying the same thing. If you had to live with this devastating disease, with it's complications and expense,what would you do? You need to search your soul? Have compassion. Have understanding of what we are going through. But, it is a fact, it is hard for darkness to comprehend light. Enough said. Seek God.

If you file a lawsuit, go to trial, and WIN you case, you are free to talk to whomever you wish. How many time have you seen some crime or another turned into a movie because somebody sold their story to the media?

People who SETTLE are AGREEING to go away quietly. Why? Follow me closely here...BECAUSE THEY WANTED THE MONEY!

Don't want to keep your mouth shut? Fine, press your case all the way thru the court system, and if you win, scream to high heaven about whatever you want!

Here's a little tip; generally settlement amounts are less than what a court would award if you win your case. And I don't want to hear BS about how Eli Lilly has an army of lawyers on their staff and how you can't afford to hire an attorney. Television is flooded with commercials from lawyers who would love to take cases for a contingency fee basis if they even smell the possibility of a profit.

Like I said to begin with, money, money, money...
