So you are saying Zyprexa jacked up your cholesterol & it came down again when you ditched it? It wouldn't surprise me at all, it's been implicated with causing hypergylcemia & diabetes too, so much that FDA made them add warnings. Some of the other atypicals carry the same warning too.

That list isn't too long yet. :) Can I assume you are bipolar?
