Maxime,

Read this:

> Zyprexa is often prescribe as a sleep aid. Seroquel is also prescribed for the same thing. Don't these doctors realise that these meds are affecting the chemical make-up of our brains? If there is a heart medication out that causes drowsiness you wouldn't be prescribed that.

> I don't know. I just don't know why doctors are so anxious to add antipsychotics to one's med regime.

> BTW, when I was in the hospital there was a young man who was taking 40 mg of Zyprexa for bipolar disorder. After one year he developed type 1 diabetes. Weeks before his admission into the psych hospital he had fallen into a diabetic coma. Makes you think twice about what these meds are doing to our bodies.
