zyprexa

Anyone know anything about the drug Zyprexa? Is it supposed to make
you stiff? I think maybe it might take time, but I don't like this side
afffect, the Dr. just prescribed it yesterday.

Re: zyprexa

I took this med a long time ago and wasnt able to tolerate the side effects.
Others here have taken it and done well. You can search the board by clicking on the "search the board" on blue bar above on the main bipolar disorder page and it will drop down a white box. Just type in zyprexa, it will bring up every post that mentions zyprexa it may take a minute or so depending on your connection speed. Good Luck

Yes,

Just kind of achy all over, like I just ran a marathon, but in my sleep.
