Isn't it seriously strange?

That “Lilly” who produces zyprexa has been mass lawsuited and made to pay over a billion dollars to people for bad side effects…and yet they keep selling the drug like nothing happened.


Yeah I wonder why and how they can keep selling Zyprexa


That’s a very good question. I wonder if all they have to do is warn people better

I guess they are still making a great profit off of it. But I think if all the people that had reason to lawsuit them actually did it, they would go bankrupt.

That was the first antipsychotic I was put on while staying inpatient at the hospital.

It is seriously extremely irresponsible to prescribe Zyprexa as a first line of defense— there’s waaaaay better meds out there with less side effects.

Should be reserved as a last resort, IMO.

It really set me back so much in my life.


They got in trouble for advertising Zyprexa for uses not approved by the FDA


Janssen was sued over Risperdal causing man boobs (gynecomastia) in boys and men.

They are still selling the drug.


They are still selling tobacco products, which are, frankly, many times more dangerous. Those should be banned outright.

There are literally hundreds of stories about people who have or had a hard time getting off this drug for whatever reason. And that’s just on this one webpage.

I have been on it 15 years…that’s really long. I guess my prospects are not good.

That’s a good point. Maybe they should get warning labels on AP’s too…oh wait…there’s not enough room to write it on the package :slight_smile:

It’s the name. No one thinks someone called Lilly is going to hurt them. Everybody trusts a Lilly.


Well…it’s good I can laugh about it.
