In 2000, I started to feel severe depression
and insomnia. In 2002, I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, and was given Zyprexa
helped somewhat, but triggered diabetes and seemed to lose effectiveness after the first month or so. Over the past year, on the advice of doctors, I have tried several other antipsychotics, SSRIs and MAOIs,including Effexor, Paxil, Risperdal, and Wellbutrin - nothing seems to have helped as much as the Zyprexa did.
