Personally I could use the weight gain. :-)
I do not like the idea of pre-treating someone for a supposed pre-shizo condition. I mean, it's tricky enough to treat someone with a clear distinct condition. But how they figure they can guess what's going to happen to someone in the future seems a bit arogant to me. If they know so much about it, then why don't they display the same kind of expertise in treating something right before their eyes?
As a zyprexa/ssri withdrawal victim myself, I now display signs of schizo that I never had before. I can not honestly say whether it is natural or whether it was longterm zyprexa induced. It is my best guess that if you took 10 perfectly normal people, put them on zyprexa for a year, withdraw them, maybe 2 - 5 of them would then show schizo traits they never had before. Just an opinion though.
