    My mom was given haldol ativan seraquel etc etc and since she had never taken them before and had nms which is a sensitivity to these drugs she went into comas and almost died. She even told the staff that she did not want them.I told them that she could not have them. They still put them in ivs and gave them to her in an injection. Now I found out that there is a law that states a person or patient has a right to just say no to these bad drugs.Wish I knew about that law before the drugs were forced on her.

    My elderly dad was hospitalized for urinary infection and constipation. Drs gave him antipsychotics and nearly a month later he is still hospitalized in “Pallative and Hospice Unit”. They are killing my dad!

    Eli Lilly Zyprexa Claims Still Unresolved

    Eli Lilly Zyprexa can cause diabetes I took Zyprexa a powerful Lilly schizophrenic drug for 4 years it was prescribed to me off-label for post traumatic stress disorder 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 side effects. Eli Lilly’s #1 cash cow Zyprexa drug sale $40 billion dollars so far,has a ten 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.
    FIVE at FIVE

    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 5pm 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 6 weeks.
