  Article Content


Olanzapine (Zyprexa) is one of the atypical antipsychotic medications. Although olanzapine is marketed as an anti-Parkinson's medication, the anti-psychiatry website Prozac Spotlight argues that a 1999 study demonstrated that the drug was ineffective.

Side Effects Common side effects include muscle-rigidity, muscle-stiffness, muscle-twitches, restlesness, sedation, and weight-gain. Olanzapine is not reported to cause tardive dyskinesia[?].
