Most definitely! My boyfriend is a drug addict and will abuse Zyprexa by taking high doses, 40-60 mg, at a time. He walks around like a Zombie, slurs his speech, has memory loss, trips over his own feet, talks like he has a mouth full of cotton and eats everything in sight. I have told his psychiatrist about his symptoms and his abuse of Zyprexa, and he walks out of her office with a bag FULL of this Crap!!!! I'm at my wits end!!!!

The only thing I can suggest is speaking to a different doctor. It is definitely not safe for him to be abusing this and obviously his current doctor is not taking your concerns seriously.

i recently started on 10mg Zyprexa with 20mg Tamazepam. I have a really fast tollerance to Tamazepam, so every second or third night instead, i load up on Zyprexa. It has side effects or sedation, and helps get rid of agitation. It can be abused. The feeling isnt that great. I get dizzy and feel like my body is jerking around the room at odd times, even days after taking zyprexa. I am quite small (55kg) and so about 50mg is enough to have me falling asleep or around the room depending on whether i stay up and ride through the feeling, or fall asleep. It isnt that great. If i were going to go to the doctor and ask for a medication, id ask for seroquel, or even largactil. Zyprexa isnt really a PRN. It has to settle into your bloodstream over weeks, and once it has most of the effects arent as noticable. And whilst dabbling in psych medications to abuse, why not try clonazepam. Recently i overdosed on 800mg, had fits all night where i kept jolting, drooled everywhere, and wet the bed. Psychiatric medications are something to be careful with.

Eli Lilly Zyprexa Claims Still Unresolved

Eli Lilly Zyprexa can cause diabetes I took Zyprexa a powerful Lilly schizophrenic drug for 4 years it was prescribed to me off-label for post traumatic stress disorder was ineffective costly and gave me diabetes.

This is a powerful drug that can damage a young person physiologically for life. Please take with caution and learn as much as you can about side effects. Eli Lilly's #1 cash cow Zyprexa drug sale $40 billion dollars so far, has a ten times greater risk of causing type 2 diabetes over the non-user of Zyprexa. So, here we have a conflict of interest that this same company also is a big profiteer of diabetes treatment.


The Zyprexa antipsychotic drug, whose side effects can include weight gain and diabetes, was sold for "children in foster care, people who have trouble sleeping, elderly in nursing homes."

Five at Five was the Zyprexa sales rep slogan, meaning 5mg dispensed at 5pm would keep patients quiet.

Google * Eli Lilly Zyprexa * and read the links. I took Zyprexa it gave me diabetes and was as addictive as tobacco. How so? Because withdrawal is accompanied by severe insomnia for 6 weeks.

I've taken Zyprexa for about 11 years.

I am physically active, eat fruits and vegetables quite frequently, avoid fast foods, avoid processed foods, drink plenty of fluids, eat sugar rarely, don't drink alcohol, and I don't smoke.

At least once per year I get a blood test and everything is normal. Also, I am in my 40s and not overweight nor under weight.

So I propose that some ailments would have occurred regardless of whether you were taking Zyprexa. That is, it just so happened that you were taking Zyprexa at the time.

Personally, I am very grateful for this particular medication.

I suspect my healthy 28 yr. old son is being drugged by his livin girlfriend with zyprexa that her 10 year old son is supposed to be taking. What should I look for as far as behavioral problems in my son? He's been unusually agressive in his behavior lately and his two (3 yr old girl & 5 yr old boy ) chiildren have been put temporarily in their natural mothers care due to my 3 yr. old grandaughter claiming the 10 yr. old "touched her pee pee" He's the one on zyprexa. My son is siding w/ his girlfriends son & not his own child. which is making me wonder about his state of mind. Please help!!!

This means he may also be hiding his abuse and his abusing of others. This is seriously dangerous here for many over lifetimes to come.

Please help!!! My dr wants to start me on zyprexa. I'm not schizophrenic nor bipolar. I have some mood issues/mania/anxiety, but I feel they're very situational due to a bad marriage. I DO suffer from anxiety induced bulemia. I am very underweight and WANT to gain weight but I'm concerned about the side effects and dependency of this drug. I'm a full time mom and can't afford to become crazy or tired. I'm scared. I've been taking gabapentin for years and feel it helps me but my dr is concerned about my weight. Is the benefit of my gaining weight on zyprexa worth the other side effects? HELP !!!!!!

Ashley Says:

I love it. Feel clear headed throughout the day. Of course I'm taking this in combination with other meds for bipolar. I have never felt so much like my childlike self. I didn't take it and I noticed a change in my thoughts for the worse right away. I HIGHLY recommend talking to your doc about this med.
