The weight gain is the major side effect of Zyprexa. There are claims that it causes diabetes, but it is my belief that it is because of the increased carbohydrate intake. The benefits if it works for you can be tremendous. My son's schizophrenic symptoms have been curtailed for the most part (paranoia,delusions,obsessions,auditory hallucinations,chronic insomnia). He takes it in conjuction with Zoloft. Zyprexa is best taken prior to bedtime, say 7-9 pm. It takes about 1 1/2 to 2 hours to take effect. Check with Dr. on this of course. Good luck! PS The Psychological benefits of Zyprexa may take a while to be in full swing.
