... normally around 8 hours a night? Thanks
If you have been taking this short term so far, a week or so, it could be that your body needs to adjust to the medication. If you've been taking it longer than this it might be a good idea to reduce the mg and see how you go with that. Do you take any other meds at 'bedtime'?
Unfortunately you are on the lowest dose possible of the Zyprexa. The recommended dose is 10 mg/day. You are probably going to have to accept this as a side effect of the Zyprexa. If it is unacceptable, discuss with the doctor switching to a less sedative medication for your condition.
