zyprexa was great for me.
when i am on 5 it is great for maintenance for me but not that helpful. do not gain weight (or very little) on that amount. i normally have to go to 10 fairly rapidly when i need it. i have been off and on it for many years. many times i gained as little as 5 and as much as 50 (though think that was more the zoloft) however i noted that if when i first got on it i drank LOTS of water with it then it didn't effect my weight as much.
no TD Ever from zyprexa any of the times ive been on on. and i was lucky that i can titrate up and down fairly quickly with it.
though i have (im pretty sure) noted a difference between the name brand and generic for me.
