Zyprexa® (olanzapine) is a drug that is licensed to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. When combined with the antidepressant fluoxetine (Prozac®), it is also approved to treat bipolar depression and treatment-resistant depression.
In clinical studies of Zyprexa for schizophrenia, people taking the medication experienced improvements in their schizophrenia symptoms (including hallucinations and suspiciousness), compared to those not taking it. In previous studies, it was also shown to be effective for bipolar disorder treatment. In these studies, Zyprexa was shown to be effective when used alone or with other bipolar disorder medications.
