Re: Zyprexa and my son--clarification

I guess I'm not clear about when these symptoms started. If they have been going on for as long as your son has been taking Zyprexa, Sebastian is probably right. Either the dose is too high or the drug isn't a good match.

If these symptoms appeared suddenly with a fever I'd be very worried, but if the stuttering and incontinence is nothing new, there is probably no immediate cause for alarm.

All the same, these SE's are clearly unacceptable. Does your son really need an antipsychotic? You didn't mention your son's diagnosis, but Zyprexa has been marketed so heavily that it is often prescribed rather casually as an anti-anxiety and mood-stabilizing drug when it is not really necessary.

If your son has a thought disorder and needs to take an antipsychotic regularly, I think looking into Abilify or Geoden would be a good idea.

Best of luck to you and your son.
