> > my pdoc prescribed this for sleep and anxiety, really the later. I took a 2.5MG pill during work this week and practically fell asleep. Way strong. Further it helped my anxiety, but was really too strong. When I used to take valium, that worked on anxiety, and made me feel great. The Zuprex didnt have that valiumy effect. Let me know how your doing

Yes, Zyprexa can cause significant weight gain. If this is a problem, and you still want to take an antipsychotic for anxiety management, then you might want to try Seroquel (quetiapine fumarate), which is a newer drug that has less of an effect on weight.
