Zyprexa coma side effects, and others like heart attacks and diabetes, are significant. In February 2004 the American Diabetes Association published a Consensus Statement in its Diabetes Care journal. In that statement, the American Diabetes Association, the American Psychiatric Association, the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists and the North American Association for the Study of Obesity, stated that data consistently shows an increased risk for diabetes in patients who are treated with Zyprexa (generic ? olanzapine).
Zyprexa is also associated with an increase risk of coma. The findings were based on input from drug companies, consultations with numerous experts, and reviewing medical literature.
What is Zyprexa?
* Zyprexa is an atypical antipsychotic medication that changes the chemical actions in your brain.
* Zyprexa is used to treat psychotic symptoms including hallucinations, delusions, and confusion.
* Zyprexa may also be used for purposes other than those listed in the medication guide.
Unfortunately, not only are schizophrenia patients being given Zyprexa; children and adolescents displaying only minor conditions are also being prescribed Zyprexa. According to many Zyprexa critics, the risks for suffering potentially deadly and serious conditions are far greater than the benefits that Zyprexa can provide for minor conditions.
Antipsychotic drugs like Zyprexa have not been adequately tested for safety in children so before prescribing, understanding the full extent of Zyprexa side effects is essential.
