I read there is a compound in zyprexa that builds up in your system. Is this true?

I took this med for 8 years, it is great. I never had a problem with it.-

But yes what happens with this medication is the risk of developing hyperglycemia and diabetes, both of which are factors in the metabolic syndrome.-

Now the FDA, for all atypical antipsychotics (second generation) requires manufacturers to have a warning and precaution label with regards to this very dangerous side effect.-

It is wise to have constant blood tests while on this medication.- (blood sugar)

Take care
