My 20 year old son is schitzoeffective with hallucinations, delusions, anxiety. He has been on so many medications with no results. He was recently put on 30 mg Zyprexa. I was hoping someone could tell me how long until he will notice positive results with this medication.
Fairly quickly (up to a few weeks) to see results but my experience was all badly negative (worsening psychosis). At least I know that sudden cessation is trouble free.
As Stephen said , it does work rapidly. In my case Zyprexa has been a life savior, it has helped my condition and I have not experienced any side effects, remember we react to medications differently (side effects, benefits, risks, interactions, etc.)
I hope it works for your son.
I felt significant benefits from Zyprexa at about two weeks with no side effects except some sleepiness the first few nights after I started it.
Best regards to you and your son, WildCat
