I hope the new medication steals the "field" as Zyprexa truly causes diabetes, hyerglycemia, and death. I should know. My son is dead from it.

Bifeprunox beats Eli Lilly Zyprexa2006-12-07 06:25:01dhaszard

Schizophrenia drug bifeprunox made by Wyeth is a cousin of Abilify sold by Bristol Myers. NEWS-The newer kid on the block bifeprunox shows it may be less effective for acute cases but does have less harmful side effects such as weight gain,and diabetes caused by the atypical anti psychotics like zyprexa which patent runs out in 2011 Zyprexa has been the market leader and the 7th largest drug sale in the world,largely by being promoted by Lilly drug reps for 'off label' usage. Good news,although at the moment more costly than the atypicals that are around. Patients on bifeprunox six week study reported slight weight loss.Diabetes risk (type 2) is usually associated with the weight gain that plagues the atypicals like zyprexa.
