    Association Between Zyprexa olanzapine and Hyperglycemia.
    There is concern Zyprexa,like other atypical antipsychotic drugs, has the potential to cause metabolic disorders, particularly hyperglycemia (excess sugar) and diabetes. Atypical antipsychotics cause the body to metabolize fat instead of carbohydrates, leading to insulin resistance to the excess carbohydrates. At the same time they promote fat accumulation.I was a patient back in 1996-2000 who was a subject of Eli Lilly's Zyprexa 'viva' Zyprexa' off label sales promotion.I was given it as an ineffective costly treatment for PTSD It gave me diabetes as a side effect.--Daniel Haszard

  2. $65 billion is a lot to cause metabolic disorders. I am very sorry you got diabetes as a side effect. I got fat accumulation. Zyprexa is costly and was ineffective for me, as well.
