Dangerous Drugs Zyprexa

Zyprexa was approved for the short-term treatment of acute manic episodes in bipolar disorder. There have been many questions regarding the popular drug Zyprexa and its safety. Linked to 288 reported Zyprexa diabetes cases, including 23 deaths, the Zyprexa concerns were so great that Japan and the European Union required that diabetes warnings be included on Zyprexa labeling.

Despite the FDA including a warning of Zyprexa causing diabetes and hyperglycemia, the information is brief and not highlighted in the Zyprexa adverse reactions section. Zyprexa attorneys feel this may be a way to minimize the appearance of serious risks. The FDA has received 384 Zyprexa diabetes reports, with the majority of the diabetes cases diagnosed for the first time. Some studies indicate Zyprexa diabetes instances are not due to the use of the drug but instead to a higher risk of diabetes in schizophrenic sufferers. However, Zyprexa attorneys beg to differ. All in all, there has been little done on the part of federal regulators to ensure Zyprexa benefits outweigh its risks.
