Hi gaz,  My boyfriend used to be on Zyprexa 30 mg about a year ago I guess.  He also took it at night as it made him tired and he said that it gave him some pretty bad headaches and sore muscles too.  He doesnt take it anymore as the side effects of it never get any better for him.  I hope that it works for you though....let us know.  Take care

Yeah, its definitely normal. Olanzapine is classed with druggs called "major tranqualizers" it'll definitely make you feel not good.
