Zyprexa Side Effects are Deadly: Effects Include NMS


Zyprexa is a prescription drug that treats schizophrenia, acute mania and bipolar disorder. It is a psychotropic drug that treats the psychotic disorders of the mind but unlike other drugs for psychotic disorders, Zyprexa is an atypical antipsychotic. Eli Lily, the manufacturer of the drug Zyprexa, has been accused of promoting off-label prescriptions of Zyprexa, many to children, knowing that the FDA would force them to include risk information on the label and that the FDA has not approved the drug for use with children. Risks and side effects of Zyprexa include diabetes, hyperglycemia, pancreatitis, weight gain, tardive dyskinesia, neuroleptic malignant syndrome. The FDA has stated the Zyprexa should not be used if a patient is a child or has ADD, depression, addictions, treating aggressive behavior, or mood elevation, but it continues to be given to these people.

In legal battles, lawsuits filed against Eli-Lilly, the manufacturer of Zyprexa, consumers sued the company for inadequately warning consumers of the side effects. Eli-Lilly settled the claims, paying almost $700 million. If you or a loved one has suffered from Zyprexa side effects that could have been prevented had the label carried the appropriate information or the Eli-Lilly manufacturing company hadn't promoted the off label sales of Zyprexa, you may be entitled to file a lawsuit against Eli-Lilly.
