Just to clear something up -- Zyprexa as well as a number of other medications are to treat PSYCHOSIS. Schizophrenia is only one of the psychiatric disorders in which people have psychotic features (symptoms). Athough psychosis tends to be the most obvious feature of schizophrenia, and schizophrenia is what most laypeople think of when they think of psychosis.
For example, I take Seroquel, a medication in the same class as Zyprexa, however, I am not schizophrenic. I do, however, have mild psychosis when my depression is at rick bottom, and because of a psychotic reaction to a combination of meds awhile back I take a moderatly low dose at bedtime.
Check with your doctor, a psychiatrist is best, if you are pregnant before you take ANYTHING including "natural" substances.
Only you know if this applies to you, and you need not tell any of us, but if you have EVER in the past done hallucinogens (ie LSD, mushrooms, peyote, or PSP [angle dust], you really must tell the doctor. MamaB
