In brief: Depends
The treatment for a zyprexa (olanzapine) overdose will vary.
If the zyprexa (olanzapine) overdose was recent, may give certain medicines or place a tube into the stomach to "pump the stomach." however, once zyprexa (olanzapine) has been absorbed into the body, there is no treatment that can remove it quickly. Therefore, in these cases, treatment involves supportive care, which consists of treating the symptoms.
