Zyprexa (olanzapine): Zyprexa (olanzapine) isn't usually used for sleep alone. It's an antipsychotic with potential side effects [like weight gain] best avoided unless you truly need its antipsychotic activity. It's important for you ; your doctor to determine why you're having sleep problems. Maintain good sleep hygiene -- for tips, see http://tinyurl.Com/lpcwhxt covered medicaid services differ between states -- ask locally.
