Zyprexa was promoted indiscriminately {Viva Zyprexa} with much glamour as an 'anti-psychotic' panacea cure-all for patients with psychological trauma and other issues.There is only a narrow range of patients with schizophrenia accompanied by delusional hallucinations or for agitated manic patients who are FDA approved for good reason.

All zyprexa does for the rest of us patients is make you unproductive and sleep a lot.As a matter of record zyprexa is widely used as a sleeping pill for people with NO psychiatric problems.

The drug was 'tainted' in that warnings about dangerous side effects were withheld.It was Eli Lilly that manufactured,promoted and exaggerated the efficacy of it's defective zyprexa product.

Lilly set up a $700 million zyprexa settlement injury fund way back,has given over $100 million of that to their lawyer buds and stonewalled true victims like myself.I paid for the zyprexa out of my own pocket it didn't work as they promised and gave me diabetes now I want my money back.

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.
