I thought all antipsychotics have the possibility of increasing your blood sugar

I didn’t get diabetes and was on it for a year and a half, but then again I wasn’t compliant. Not sure if the unbalanced dosing all the time stopped some side effects. Don’t know how that works.

I met a guy in the hospital who developed diabetes from Zyprexa.
I was on it at the time, and got off of it because of that.

ive been on zyprexa for a while, used to be in good shape and i gained almost 180 pounds being on it for almost 2 years, despite this my blood sugar is always completely normal whenever i go to the doctor so no diabetes at all, but my cholesterol is a little higher than before i started taking it, the weight gain sucks tho and i never feel full when eating, might be going on a different medication soon zyprexa works well for me but the side effects are no good

Maybe you can contact the manufacturer of your medication and ask them this question.

I hate this drug. I put on 35 kilos on it and I have been off it four years and only lost 15 kilos

I gained a lot of weight on it and got diabetes from it. I stopped the Zyprexa and changed to Abilify.


I hope not. I take 60mg olanzapine


that is a huge dose


I took zypexa before but it doesnt make any difference to my blood glucose levels. Just an increase in appetite thats all.


I was taking Zyprexa in 2011 and came down with diabetes. I switched to Risperdal. I weighed 330lbs when I came down with diabetes. I started taking Zyprexa in 2008 and maybe weighed 225lbs.
