update

well I went to my p-doc.. on tuesday.... they gave me samples of Zyprexa. it saved me $250.00..... I tried generic Risperdol. for a week. and it didnt agree with me..... so am back on zyprexa again. It works for me but is very expensive. however, I was told that zyprexa is going to be in generic form later this year... I cant wait to try it......

hugs, Caren

Re: update

Caren,

I'm sorry Risperdal didn't work out for you, but am glad your pdoc was able to give you samples of Zyprexa. It's also good news that there will be a generic coming out for Zyprexa. That should help you considerably.
