Zyprexa (Olanzapine), a drug primarily prescribed for the treatment of schizophrenia has been attributed to causing to diabetes mellitus, hyperglycemia, pancreatitis and blood sugar disorders in many of its consumers. The manufacturer of the drug, Eli Lilly & Co., previously promoted Zyprexa as a safe and effective drug for psychotic disorders, while virtually concealing the risks of side effects from doctors and from the patients themselves.
Recent lawsuits have shown the inadequacy of Eli Lily & Co.’s warning in regards to these conditions prior to 2003 and have resulted in large verdicts and settlements for those adversely affected by the drug. If you or a loved one have taken Zyprexa and have developed diabetes mellitus, hyperglycemia, pancreatitis or a blood sugar disorder contact one of our personal injury attorneys immediately to hear how we can help.
