Know someone on Zyprexa? (olanzipine)

Post by RedGlitter »

I was just reading my email and this stupid drug is still on the market, much to my irritation.

Zyprexa (chemical name is olanzipine) is a drug used to treat bipolar disorder and some other types of mental disorders. It works very well. But it is known to cause diabetes in people. I used it and am now diabetic. No one told me this could happen or I would not have taken it. So if you know someone who is prescribed this drug, please ask them to talk to their doctor about the potential risk of diabetes. Of course all drugs carry risks but Zyprexa has a high potential and doctors are still not telling this to their patients.
