Eli Lilly Stalling Zyprexa ClaimsDaniel Haszard for Salem-News.com
Be warned- Zyprexa is addictive; possibly worse than nicotine.
(Bangor, Maine) - Lilly's (NOW up to $4.6 billion) Zyprexa settlement payout is being stonewalled. 8 Lilly employees who are supposed 'whistle-blowers' are getting $ 10 million each, as the real victims like me are being ignored.
I am a living example of Zyprexa gone/done wrong; was given it between 1996 and 2000 off-label for PTSD, then suddenly developed high blood sugar A1C 14.7 in January 2000.
The stuff was worthless for my condition, PTSD, and cost me thousands in co-pays; it also gave me diabetes.
Eli Lilly has made $40 billion on Zyprexa and it was way oversold and caused diabetes and in some cases sudden death.
How addictive Zyprexa was pushed by Lilly Drug Reps They called it the "VIVA ZYPREXA" campaign to off label market Eli Lilly Zyprexa as a fix for unapproved usage.
Zyprexa (Olanzapine) is known as an atypical antipsychotic. It's mechanism of action is thought to be that it increases levels of serotonin and dopamine. It's chemical name is thienobenzodiazepine, although is not a benzo like valium.
One of its well known major side effects is weight gain, which is why it is sometimes favored for those with eating disorders (which would be an off label use).
Doctors are at liberty to prescribe drugs that are 'off label' like Zyprexa, which is only FDA approved for schizophrenia and bipolar.
They can give it or just about any drug, for conditions other than what the drug was tested for. The doctors don't realize that Zyprexa is very addictive once a dependence has been built up and withdrawal is wicked.
When I took it from 1996-2000 for PTSD, it was worthless for my symptoms and gave me diabetes with an A1C of 13.9 normal blood sugar is 4.
I had to get off it and it took me two months of horrible insomnia; I did not sleep for weeks.
So be warned- Zyprexa is addictive; I think it is worse than nicotine and if you are addicted, don't go off it unless you do so gradually under a doctor's care.
