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.
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'?
