Comment:
I took Zyprexa to manage my perimenopausal hypertension and erractic mood. It was like being on vacation. It worked great, BUT the weight gain is HORRIFIC. My idiot doctor said that I would NOT gain weight which is ridiculous because this drug is known for its weight gain side effect. I gained 12 lbs in less than 2 weeks.
