since taking zyprexa for a few months my liver function has tripled , i have quit it about a week ago because i was always swollen in my chest and it hurt to lean over plus concerns with diabetes, i hurt some under my ribs on the right side sad thing no insurance, hopefully since i stopped it it will go back to normal, my doctor said the zyprexa can do this , hes going to recheck me in a few weeks to see if its going back down, i don't drink or smoke, and i never had trouble with it before so hopefully it goes back to normal

I am sorry that you have run into this issue.  I hope your liver functions return to normal quickly.

Guess that answers your question about taking that med.  sad

You are in my thoughts and prayers so know I care.

Gentle Hugs

Why did your doc not do monthly blood tests on your liver functions to see what was going on is my question

I am on Methotrexate and have to have these done regulary


I wish you all the best and hope your liver does return to normal function range

the first doctor i was going to was like see in 6 months, where on zyprexa it said you needed monthly check ups for diabetes and liver, but he was excuse me a none caring doc, my new one which is great is going to check upon me in a month to see how they are, i'm not taking zyprexa again, i wish you could have seen how my stomach swole out in weeks when i was eating less and was like why is my body doing this, and it was like hard it was so swolen. its went down since but my right side still hurt some,
