    Eli Lilly Zyprexa can *cause* diabetes.

    I took Zyprexa a powerful Lilly schizophrenic drug for 4 years it was prescribed to me off-label for post traumatic stress disorder was ineffective costly and gave me diabetes.
    Eli Lilly’s #1 cash cow Zyprexa drug sale $40 billion dollars so far,has a ten times greater risk of causing type 2 diabetes over the non-user of Zyprexa. So,here we have a conflict of interest that this same company also is a big profiteer of diabetes treatment.

    Maybe you have finally found a home for all of the overproduction of antipsychotics. We can tranquilize individuals in the midst of mania for a short period.

    This comment should be removed immediately as many psychotics if they get the right treatment they can go on & live full productive lives. Not many people understand that we live the same lives as you do. I’ve
    been bipolar for quote a while but struggle with the meds I take as I work 2 different 12 step programs as
    1 of them deals with emotions. Anyone that makes that type of comment is insensitive to the ones that have this disease. Mr Zimmerman wake up & smell the meds you need to take if you do take any as this is one of the most insensitive comments that I’ve ever heard about people with mental illness you need to spend more time with people like us & understand where we come from as some of us came from real dysfunction in our lives as I pray that you get a grip on what you just said your
    fellows will appreciate you for it
