|Eli Lilly Zyprexa can cause diabetes. I took Zyprexa, a powerful Lilly schizophrenic drug for four years. It was prescribed to me off-label for post traumatic stress disorder and was ineffective, costly and gave me diabetes.
This is a powerful drug that can damage a young person physiologically for life. Please take with caution and learn as much as you can about the side effects.
Eli Lilly's #1 cash cow Zyprexa (drug sale, $40 billion dollars so far)has a 10 times greater risk of causing type 2 diabetes over the non-user of Zyprexa. So, here we have a conflict of interest that this same company also is a big profiteer of diabetes treatment.
The Zyprexa antipsychotic drug, whose side effects can include weight gain and diabetes, was sold for "children in foster care, people who have trouble sleeping, elderly in nursing homes." "Five at Five" was the Zyprexa sales rep slogan, meaning 5mg dispensed at 5 p.m. would keep patients quiet.
Google "Eli Lilly Zyprexa" and read the links. I took Zyprexa. It gave me diabetes and was as addictive as tobacco. How so? Because withdrawal is accompanied by severe insomnia for six weeks.
