When I first started Zyprexa it did make me tired, and still today sometimes I get tired legs. I used to sleep about 10 hours. That was when I was taking Zyprexa at bedtime. Then I experimented with other times to see if tweeking it might make any difference. For me, I find that 5:00pm is just right, because it really doesn't start making me drowsy until about 8:00. And then I sleep a regular 8 hours instead of 10. I think everyone is different though, and that a little experimentation will help find what works best.
