I have a cousin I am really close to. His doctor prescribed Zyprexa for him. In 40 Days he gain 20 pounds!

He ate like a fiend. It was like he had a one track mind. I knew what was going on, but I didn’t know how to stop him…or that I could. I felt so bad for him. But he needed to have some type of help and there was not other options in his mental health system.

You can read more about the “side-effects” of Zyprexa or Olanzapine in “What Doctors Don’t Tell You.”

Luckily, the doctor he has said that he doesn’t have to take this drug for the rest of his life…just to get through the episode.
