Zyprexa?

Anybody ever been on this medicine? The dose is 10 or 15 mg daily.

Re: Zyprexa?

yup!

i HATED it!

I got nothing good out of it. The best thing I could have done for myslef was get off it! Anytime I see anyone post on this drug I write, I write about my disdain for something that is supposed to be so great but in reality is nothing but trouble.

After choosing to go off it I was moved over to Lithium and I have nothing but praise for it! I still have lows but they are not near what they used to be (plus I am on the lowest dose possible and I am sure if I wanted I could up it a little and I would be a staright line). My vote is for Zyprexa to be taken off the market but I am only one person, so I use this as a way to caution as many as I can!

Ultimately it is your call...I am just sharing with you my thoughts.

Re: Zyprexa?

Hello

I thought Zyprexa was fantastic. It kept me so stable for ages. I thought it really fixed me, but I'm off it now because I put on heaps and heaps of weight while on it.

See ya
