I was prescribed zyprexia once for a sleep aid. It did work for that but my son looked it up online and it said it was an anti-psychotic med which seemed outrageous that the MD had prescribed that for sleeping issues. It also said it could make your blood sugar soar,perhaps giving you diabetes. I told the MD who dismissed anything I said. I ceased taking it and just wondered if the MD got a great kickback from the pharmaceutical salesman for prescribing it instead of a simpler cheaper sleeping pill.
