ZYPREXA ZYDIS (OLANZAPINE)

Zyprexa Zydis Description

Zyprexa Zydis is an oral disintegrating drug that may be prescribed for treating schizophrenia or bipolar disorder in those 18 years and older. As an add-on to Fluoxetine, Zyprexa Zydis can benefit individuals with certain types of depression as well, including acute (rapid onset) depressive episodes in adults with bipolar I disorder and acute, resistant depression in adults. Olanzapine is the active ingredient of Zyprexa while Zydis indicates the technology used to manufacture the orally disintegrating tablets.

It is believed that psychotic illnesses are due to a disturbance in the activity of brain chemicals called neurotransmitters, dopamine in particular. When Zyprexa Zydis is taken as directed, it will work to block the dopamine receptors in your brain that this neurotransmitter acts on. This action will help to stop the undue activity that could be responsible for causing some of the symptoms of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, including delusions and hallucinations or inappropriate euphoria or irritability and increased energy.

Conditions Treated by Zyprexa Zydis

Genetics and biological factors are believed to play a part in being schizophrenic, a chronic and debilitating mental illness that will not get better without the proper diagnosis and medication. Symptoms can include hearing voices, feeling sensations that are not real, and disorganized speech or behaviors.

Bipolar disorder was once called manic depression due to the mood swings that can cause fast and loud talking and elation, or have disconnected thoughts and an irritable disposition. Your social behavior can become inappropriate as can your sexual behavior. Your friends, family, or coworkers may never know which personality trait you will display. Risk factors include having a close family member with a mood disorder or a family history of substance abuse.

Before You Take Zyprexa Zydis

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding before taking Zyprexa Zydis in case there are any health risks to your unborn or nursing baby. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies you have and list any OTC or Rx drugs you currently take or use, including herbal remedies and vitamin or dietary supplements, as this will help your doctor determine if Zyprexa Zydis is safe for you.

Warnings for Zyprexa Zydis

Zyprexa Zydis is not approved for treating the psychotic conditions related to dementia. If your symptoms are not improving, revisit your doctor as your dosage may need to be changed. Do not consume alcohol while on this drug as it can raise your risk of serious side effects. Monitor your blood sugar often if you are diabetic as Zyprexa Zydis may increase sugar levels. Until you know how Olanzapine will affect you, do not drive, operate machinery, or attempt any task that may be considered unsafe.
