Dear opennc, Pledge and Ruthie, I think zyprexs also may be linked to diabetes onset too, but not in everyone, please have your dr monitor your sugar levels. My old co worker billy was on zyprexa for bipolar disorder, to worked and he was the most fun person I have ever worked with when he was on it. He gained alot of weight. Maybe Openncs dr might add an appetite suppressant, if it is safe to do so. I have tried one thru a clinic afew years ago, the phentermine. I did NOT think it was as effective as the one I started recently thru a diet clinic, called Didrex. It is a bit more expensive than the phentermine, but I have had better results and up until last night, have been able to sleep. You may have noticed I posted all night last night. I am supposed to take 3 of these a day, but can get by on 1 to 1.5 pills.
The main thing is cutting calories by not eating as much, no fast food at all and trying to eat more fruit, vegetables and and home prepared meals. I lost 17 lbs in a little over 2 months. I guess I took the second dose too late in the day, but I will be napping today to make up for all the lost sleep? This is the first time it has done me that way. No Danish for me, haha. Patti
