    Reviewed Zyprexaon 3/14/2017I was not told the benefits or side effects of this med. My psychiatrist took me off Lithium, which I was doing well on, to put me on the Zyprexa. I gained 100 pounds in six months, which I couldn't lose until another doctor took me off the med. Before taking Zyprexa I was slim and never had a weight problem. Since that time, unless I'm very careful, I gain weight very, very easily. Today, more than 15 years after stopping the Zyprexa, I am generally 15 pounds too heavy.

    Reviewed ZyprexaI did not know Zyprexa caused severe seizures then you have to quit taking it but cant and find the withdrawal from Zyprexa is worse than anything you can imagine. Don't take it! It is very lucrative for GP's to push this drug.
