It sounds like zyprexa is for bipolar disorder. Though I take bipolar medications and I am not bipolar. Have you started the medication yet? It might take time for it to reach it's full effect. Sometimes four to six weeks.

Let us know how this medication works for you. I hope that it helps you.

Keep posting, best wishes.

zyprexa is an anti-psychotic medication. quite sedating. was on it a long time ago. dr. may have you on it for other reasons. very useful for treating affective disorders and psychosis.
jamie. i was on it when i had a dx of schizo affective disorder, not the bi polar type, the more insidious schizophrenic type. hope this helps. jamie
