Depending on how old you are I really don't think it is safe to take for life.

There are many risks. On withdrawal you could suffer insomnia real bad- I've heard of people not sleeping for weeks.

How about some antihistamines, or even better, Trazadone? Zyprexa can cause diabetes, prolactin elevation, cardiac problems etc especially with long term use and on a higher dose (ie 10-15mg)

I mean, it would be safe for a few years, but even then there could be bad insomnia, real bad, on withdrawal (unless your taking another sedating med with it)

Another option is to stay on Zyprexa a few years and then change to another sedating AP.

But for just insomnia (is that all you are taking it for?- sorry i forgot) APs are preety hardcore.

Good luck...................................
