Eli Lilly Stalling Zyprexa Claims

Be warned- Zyprexa is addictive; possibly worse than nicotine.

Ely Lilly

(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.

Zyprexa,as well as the other atypical antipsychotics, are being prescribed for children, even though this is an unapproved, off-label use. A report by Dr. Cooper at Vanderbilt University states that 2.5 million children are now taking atypical antipsychotics. Over half are being given them for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Perhaps it is statistics like these that caused the FDA to finally require warnings on the labels of the ADHD drugs. The use of atypical antipsychotics for children should be banned.

I think there should be a distinction (legal or otherwise) between those unfortunate souls who were given Zyprexa for psychosis or bipolar disorder and got sick with diabetes and the people who were given it off-label for PTSD or depression, etc. and got diabetes. I'm not a chemist, but wouldn't the drug be developed to help correct some kind of neurotransmitter that is "broken" and causes scizophrenia and therefore dangerous to someone who doesn't. Just wondering.......

but marijuana is illegal..dear lord. This should be a clear sign, that our government is now nothing but corporate whores. And israel whores too. Bank whores, and oil company whores. They take my tax money to start illegal wars, bring dangerous pharmaceutical drugs, outlaw substances that are good for us, etc. I am sick and tired of this. I heard a comment from a radio show host, it hit home.. "information fatigue".. yes, I am tired. Tired of people not waking up to this bulls***.. The people running the western world are eugenisists. Cures are forbidden, but dangerous drugs are applauded. Now they want forced vaccinations!! Do you know what is in those vaccinations?? Read the insert. DOnt even get me started on sodium flouride poison in our water, GMO food.. Too late, I put a GMO cucumber, next to one I grew. The GMO cuke would not decompose. It turned into frigin rubber. Neither my goats or chickens would go near it. And they will eat anything. And Hitler used sodium flouride (in our water) to calm down the prisoners in their camps. It is a poison, read the label on your toothpaste..its poison. Lilly can sell with FDA approval, but marijuana is illegal..are you getting this yet??

Lilly just collaborated with Walmart on sales of Insulin.Lets not overlook that Lilly's number one sale is Zyprexa which has a side effect liability for *causing* diabetes and pancreatitis and has resulted in damage settlements.Think about this 'conflict of interest' profit on the diabetes aggravated by another company drug Zyprexa. Lilly makes billions on diabetes treatment and care and they pleaded guilty to fraud in promoting Zyprexa for causing the diabetes in the first place. WOW!

Clara Roberts July 2, 2010 5:40 am (Pacific time)

Zyprexa, a drug created by Eli Lilly to positively cause you physical health problems by damaging your pancreas so as to positively cause you mental health problems and to take more of their drugs (Insulin) to cover up the harm caused by their other drugs. Eli Lilly is an unethical company. I believe in an eye for an eye and a liver for a liver. Eli Lilly and their scientists,they deserve God's retribution.
