Hi
Am wondering if voices became more clearer when start zyprexa? Right now voices are fewer in a crowd feeling and still dont understand the voices but its clearer like I can picture the lines moving when one look at music beats or disco light other time. Juststaring at disco light and able to focus on one color spot n ffollowit

My son was on zyprexa for a short period. He didn`t say if anything got clearer but, he definitley got better-and felt better. Good luck to you

just makes me a bit more numb.

The voices are quieter some times but when I’m upset or agitated its louder and more clearer.
