... different brand than the usual zypraxa at the chemist
they work but i notice there smaller and it seems have a different rise and tail off of effect i wonder do other users or professionals notice this ?
i think a lack of a coating and filler size hence time to dissolve and therefore the action of them seem very different it has not affected my daily routine yet but it is noticeable to me and i made an appointment with my consultant to discuss it further
i must add this is the only problem with this drug ive ever had it changed my life for the better and i am worried i maybe have no choice but to put up with some adjustments not too sure but ill try not to let it bother me
As far as I know you are taking the same medication with two different names, it would seem to me since you are taking the same dose there shouldn't be any difference in effectiveness wether taking Olanzapine or Zypraxa. See: https://www.drugs.com/pro/zyprexa.html .Scroll down to the section on BiPolar Dissorder, hope this is helpful. Making an appointment with your consultant to discuss it further I am sure will clear up any questions. Good idea to do so.

on this occasion you seem to have answered the question i asked by semi quoting what i said however you glance over what was indeed asked
to reiterate i simply asked people who take the drug !!! or professionals !!
if the size of the pill and the coating being missing on these new 'clones' makes a difference to the release 'tail off' time for the drug to the blood and therefore its longevity i feel its released too quickly and i already assumed it does from experience
