Taking this med for depression and insomnia for the past two weeks -- it works very well for both. However, I have intense food cravings, very bad gas, and my stomach has bloated out so badly that I look like I'm 6 months pregnant! I'm going to stop taking it today.

Zyprexa is a wonderful drug. I took it for 6 years and felt great. Then I started to have tremors in my hands. Discontinued it. Now on an SSRI drug and it is not working at all. Still seeking medical advice.
