Possible correlation: Possible side effects from zypreza include asthenia, dizziness, drowsiness, extrapyramidal rxn, hyperkinetic muscle activity, cogwheel rigidity, drug-induced parkinson's disease, dyspepsia, mask-like face, xerostomia, feeling sad or empty & loss of interest or pleasure. I therefore prefer natural interventions for mental health care & I am available for counseling via HealthTap. Best of luck!

Cat. C: Zyprexa (olanzapine) is a category c medication for pregnancy, meaning that the risks and benefits need to be carefully balanced and evaluated but no serious adverse events are yet described. Do not suddenly stop any medicine until talking with your doctor. Zyprexa (olanzapine) is safer than many drugs such as lithium or Depakote used for similar indications. It is listed as "possibly unsafe" for lactation.

Go to: Another surgeon. Many of today's surgeons are trained laparoscopically but are not so confident in open procedures. Older surgeons are more experienced in both, since they started with open procedures and then they adopted laparoscopic ones.
