I am not an expert on this subject, but I'm very concerned that your son's symptoms could indicate one of the very severe side effects occasionally seen with anti-psychotics, like neuroleptic malignant syndrome. You didn't mention if your son's temperature was elevated; this is also one of the symptoms of NMS.

If possible, I would stop the zyprexa and have your son evaluated immediately by a good psychiatrist.

Incidentally, Zyprexa is infamous for being one of the most expensive antipsychotics on the market. You shouldn't have any trouble finding a substitute if necessary.

Once again, please get your son to an experienced psychiatrist immediately to rule out the possibility of NMS. It is a very serious condition.
