More questions about Zyprexa

I want to know somebody who IS NOTTT skinny and has not gained weight on zyprexa. Also, has not had any sign of diabetes. Also Anybody who is on 2.5 mg and does it help?

I have been on 5 mg for 5 days. Supposed to go up to 10 mg soon. I probably won't stay on it. Unless this fatigue, cotton mouth and sore muscles goes away. By the way, I did try Benadryl for a few nights and it seemed to help the muscle stiffness.
I got an incredible stiff neck Today, but I think if was one of my "cold" stiff necks. Because decongestant has almost cured it. Anyway, I'm just looking for more details.

Re: More questions about Zyprexa

I took zyprexa for about 30 days and I had to give it up. I couldn't get out of bed, was tired for the first couple of hours and I gained a TON of weight. I have a guy friend who had the same issue with his weight. Don't get me wrong, neither one of us was really skinny to begin with so that may have something to do with it.

Re: More questions about Zyprexa

thanks for the message. I have been slowly getting over the extreme grogginess. But don't know if it's enough to avoid weight gain. Let me know if you know anybody else with good news. It feels like it's working in calming me down. That's the bad part. I probably will have to quit taking it.
