Some guy was on 5mg- smoked to packs a day, and he loved Zyprexa- no probs with the fags. I've searched heaps of anecdotes, and unless you smoke a ridiculous amount I doubt it would have much impact on the Zyprexa. It probably has a non noticable impact- cause the drug is still getting to youyr brain, it's just being metabolised a little quicker. In other words you MUST notice something, smoker or not.

Hey Caleb,
If you ever want a drug which says don't smoke (Luvox, Anafranil, etc)don't be turned I said, it realloy doesn't make a huge difference. If anything, and at the worst, u might need a small dose increase ie from 25 to 50mg Anafranil AT MOST.

Take care friend,
