The number one way to indentify a terrible doctor, one who is reckless and has no regard for patient wellbeing or safety whatsoever is one who prescribes their patient Zyprexa. This is a drug being handed out to treat anything from anxiety to sleep disorder, none of which it has ever been approved to treat by any governmental health regulatory body. Even worse, this is often a physician's first line treatment option. It really requires a certain level of sociopathy and/or sadism on the part of the physician to hand this drug out to anybody.
This drug is the strongest appetite stimulant on earth, even surpassing Cannabis. Make no mistake, you will gain weight, more so than with any other drug on earth, you will have an unbelievable hunger and inability to feel full, your insulin sensitivty will be affected negatively and you will greatly increase your risk of Diabetes type II, none of which your physician is likely to inform you about. When I read that patients who already have Diabetes or are overweight are put on this drug, it is honestly sickening.
Even if you actually do have a psychotic or other disorder requiring an antipsychotic, there are MANY better and safer alternatives atypical antipsychotics from which your doctor can choose from. Seroquel, Saphris, Geodon, Risperdal, etc etc. There is really NO condition or justifiable reason that this drug should ever be used period!
