    I was finally given this medication after suffering with severe daily anxiety for six months. I have only been on it for a week. I worked immediately, and the anxiety is dwindling away. I agree with one of the other reviewers in that it saved my life.

    I have Bi-Polar with psychotic features, and I was having a difficult time sleeping. So my psychiatrist started me on a low dose of Olanzapine. It works great; I finally got a good night's sleep.
