> My brother has been put on zyprexa or olanzapine> he is slightly mentally handicapped with an underlying manic condition. He has been put on small amounts as in the past neuroleptics have caused low white blood count and neuroleptic malignancy syndrome. His ck level shot up to 1,096, normal for him would be around 124 I think. However Drs said it is not signifigant as he could have had the count go up like that for a bruise. Anyone know if this is true. He also had a life threatening encounter with valporic acid in the past and it started with a rash. He now has a rash on his hands, however the Dr. in command seems to think it is not anything to be concerned about. Easy for him to say he is not the one with the rash. Along these lines doe nyone anyone have any theories as to why psychiatrists in institutions have such a god complex, when basically they are just dealing with handing out drug company products, not knowing if they will work, and if they do certainly not knowing why? Why have we enpowered them to the degree we have. Lot of questions, love to get some answers to one or all of above thoughts or concerns
