New to zyprexa

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

the only thing i noticed on 20 mg zyprexa
was that i hold a pen in my hand and flick it fast too the left and right

I didn’t like Zyprexia. All it did was make me want to eat and eat bad stuff like chips and so on.

im on zyprexa 14 years

Same reason my son wanted off of it.
