Hi ~ this is my first visit to a searchboard of any kind -- but I was searching the internet for any information related to Zyprexa being used in conjunction with Concerta for ADHD -- and was directed here.

So . . . . my 11 year old son was just prescribed Zyprexa to assist with behaviors associated with ADHD. He is in 5th grade, has an IQ of 156 -- but often exhibits the behaviors of a child much younger than his age. In addition, he has ADHD. For quite awhile I resisted using medication to treat him, but was convinced that a trial of medication was worth a try. It was successful.

Anyway -- I'm rambling (I do that when I'm nervous!) -- the reason I came to search on Zyprexa was because the information sheet that came with the prescription described it as an "antipsychotic" medication, used most commonly for schizophrenia -- but my child has not been diagnosed with these illnesses -- so I'm confused.

Has anyone ever heard of Zyprexa being used for purposes of ADHD??? Or have you or anyone you've known used it??

I would greatly appreciate any responses!!
