Zyprexa Overview

Olanzapine (originally branded Zyprexa) is an antipsychotic medication used to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. It is usually classed with the atypical antipsychotics, the newer generation of antipsychotics.[5] It appears to have slightly greater effectiveness in treating schizophrenia (especially the negative symptoms) and a lower risk of causing movement disorders than typical antipsychotics.[6] Olanzapine, however, has a higher risk of causing metab...

zyprexa abuse or misuse

many patients are voluntarily requesting zyprexa. now i want to know if patients are mixing or using this drug in an illegal manner? ## 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...

Small Yellow Tablet With 5 On One Side and nothing on the other

what is this pill? it is small round and yellow and has the number 5 on it only ## Based on your description, this pill could be one of three different drugs. Zyprexa Zydis (5mg) manufactured by Eli Lilly and Company Meloxicam (7.5mg) manufactured by Carlsbad Technology, Inc. Olanzapine (5mg) manufactured by Eli Lilly and Company If you're able to, I would suggest contacting (emailing) each manufacturer with a photo of your pill so they can identify whether or not it's something they produce.

zyprexa weight loss stories

I seem to be having some difficulties losing some zyprexa weight. the first time I was on 40mg for about 6 months and when I stopped, 50lbs went away in 2-3 months just purely coming off the medication, no diet and no exercise. most recently I was on for about 3 months on 5mg. I gained about 20-25lbs. I have been off for almost 6 weeks and I only lost about 5 pounds. it seems like the scale stops there. any insight on why this can be besides the feared metabolic dysfunction that zyprexa is known to cause? I would love to hear stories and experiences about the weight loss process you all went through with this drug. Thanks. ## Hello, Nathan! How are you? Have you tried adjusting your diet and getting more exercise this time? As we age, our metabolism tends to naturally slow down, so you ...

zyprexa

I have bipolar and was on 5mg of olanzapine and 20mg of seroxat. I was quite well for 8 or 9 years. I asked my doctor if I could come off the meds, and she took me off the olanzapine in December 2012. I had an awful relapse about 6 months later, ended up in hospital, lost my job and caused awful hardship for my family. I have asked my doctors and pharmacist if stopping the olanzapine caused the relapse and they all said no, as after stopping the olanzapine symptoms would occur within a week or so. I can accept this. However, I also asked if I had carried on taking it could I have prevented the relapse. Again,they all said no - that because relapse occurred about 6 months after I came off it, that there was no link between the two. Again I asked a few times if I had continued taking the ...

I saw on a website that taking Zyprexa and Tramadol is bad & causes seizures.

I think if this is true that might be why I've been having seizures (about 1 month). So I've taken myself of Zyprexa since I'm so scared of another seizures. This has caused my panic attacks and anxiety to sky rocket. I walk dogs for a living and am always afraid I'll have a seizure while no one is around. ## HI Mikki, You're correct, taking Zyprexa (olanzapine) with Tramadol can cause seizures. The anxiety you're experiencing is most likely one of the withdrawal symptoms of Zyprexa. Other detox symptoms include Insomnia, bipolar disorder symptoms (like depression or mania), and symptoms of schizophrenia (like delusions or hallucinations). I completely understand your reasoning for stopping this medication, but you should speak with your doctor immediately about ...
