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.

Hello oppenc. Weight gain, having an increased appetite are both side effects in taking Zyprexa Zydis. They are normal and very common to taking the drug. Best of wishes to you, pledge

Hey there Pledge. Ruthie woke up to late for a cuppa.:( It's more like an afternoon snack now. Something cool and refreshing, as it is 200 degrees here. Ok, a slight exaggeration, but if I go to the store, I'm drenched by the time I get there. Geese Louise. Have a wonderful one my friend. Ruthie.

I agree that zyprexa causes weight gain and hunger however I think that the increase in appetite and hunger is due to dehydration. I would recommend hydralyte or gastrolyte and plenty of filtered water everyday, particularly just before and also after taking Zyprexa. Dehydration can increase your appetite and make you very hungry which leads to overeating and weight gain.
