Hi. I was just prescribed zyprexa in combination with prozac for bipolar disorder ( the more mild form). I was diagnosed in 2003, oddly, at the age of 29. I have taken so many medications for it over the years I can't list them all. There have been very few that were beneficial. When I find a good one it works for awhile and then I build up a tolerance. Now I have two chronic illnesses for which there is no cure on top of the bipolar. I have type 2 diabetes and peripheral neuropathy as a complication. I also have copd. I will die from one of these someday. My point is, I take many meds everyday... is zyprexa a good idea for me having diabetes and high cholesterol too? Sigh... feeling frustrated!!
