I toke zyprexa for 5 years put on 25 kilograms got diabetes and later peripheral neuropathy. I stopped zyprexa lost the weight controlled my diabetes but the peripheral neuropathy will not improve after 7 years?
Yes, I too was prescribed Zyprexa and developed diabetes leading to peripheral neuropathy. I was only on Zyprexa a short time, like months, but I am afraid the neuropathy has persisted now for 15 or 20 years despite the fact that my blood sugar has returned to "normal.". This condition has now become very painful as well as uncomfortable, and it is no fun for sure. I certainly hope that yours will not progress any further and wish you the best with it. . . .
