Hope ur doing better now?? I was put on OLANZAPINE/ZYPREXA when i was in the Pshyc Unit last year and when they gave it to me i asked what is was for as they just said take this Beverley it will help you. Anyway i took 1 and about an hour later i fell into the deepest sleep in a chair and the nurses said i was out for abou 6 hrs. I continued to take it while i was an inpatient but the whole time i felt like a walking zombie and i could not stop"eating" anything i could get my hand's on?? It's an anti-pshycotic which they normally use to shut people up when they are in the ward!!!! When i got out of there i stopped it imediately as i couldn't even drive without nodding,but the worst part for me was the constant eating and weight gain. But this may not happen with you as we are all different when it comes to any med's. I truly hope ur feeling better and hope this work's for you!!!! Look after ur self DUDE>>>>
