In reply to ATTN All - How does Zyprexa make you feel?, posted by ace on February 16, 2003, at 21:43:06
I was on Zyprexa (although I have recently switched to Seroquel, which I like a little better) and I didn't have any side effects (indluding weight gain) from it. My doc prescribed it for me mainly for sleep, but I found that it really helped to stabilize my mood and neutralize anxiety through the next day. I started on 5mg and worked my way up to 40mg. I really like Zyprexa because it knocks you out but doesn't leave you groggy the next day, just calm.
Best of luck to you!
