As other people have already said, we can't make the decision whether you should take Zyprexa or not. In in end it is really up to you. You should talk to your therapist about
it, maybe she can give you some hekpful info. I also wanted to let you know that even though Zyprexa is cheaper than Lamictal, it is still pricey.
I have taken Zyprexa before, and it made me really drowsy even though I took it at night. But I was taking the whole 10mg all at once. It also made me sleep a lot.
As Aussie said, it has a tendency to make you gain weight more than other drugs in its class. It can raise your blood sugar, but it can also take years before it starts affecting you. But not everyone reacts the same way to meds. It is scary to start new meds, but you should talk to a professional about
before deciding wether to take it or not. If you are not able to talk to your talk to your pdoc about
it, you can talk to someone at your local pharmacy.
As Lyn said, a lot of drug companies do have programs fro those who cannot afford their meds. Here is a link that might be helpful, I found it on the Glaxo-Smith site.
Only by seeking challenges can we hope to find the best in ourselves.
