    Zyprexa is a thienobenzodiazepine, like etizolam, the recreational research chemical. Since zyprexa is structurally related to benzodiazepines, can it be used as an anxiolytic or as a recreational sedative?

    Well, consider this not to be reacreational. There is little fun in being a drewling zombie (in high enough doses) nor does it resamble any kind of benzo, there's no euphoria, just drowsiness and endless hunger. Take it only when you're in a asylum and the force you 2! I took 10mg a day, with minimal side-effects. Gave 1 5mg one time to a friend of mine, who's completely healthy and doesn't need this kind of medication, but as a fun tester. She texted me the day after, wtf you gave me, I lied down for 18hours trying to change the channel but the remote kept felling out of my hand and I couldn't get up to change it on the tv itself. SHE HATED IT. Maybe you can test it once, on like 10mg then you now what it really does :p hahaha. I say, stay away.

    In short my experience - no that shit zyprexa made me suicidal. I can't imagine it being recreational for anyone. D2 antagonists and 5-ht2A antagonists are the worst.

    It's not like etizolam whatsoever, which I love and is great.

    Been on them 13 years and in a way they have finally become addictive but not out of psychological need but physiological need.

    They are nasty and make you feel like shit for the first month or so. You get used to it and it goes.

    It leaves you lost for things to do or to get active. Weight gain is problem. They got sued for leaving important information on the ability to increase diabetes in a large population of people.

    Saying that. When I came off them for a while and all was going good I started to relapse and I took one 5mg pill and was back to normal in 5 minutes.

    Jupp, Lilly's bills go in the billion dollars of lawsuits he has lost. You can get verry strange illnesses from it, not only diabetes. I used to be on zyprexa too, but now I'm on Seroquell and soon Lithium with it. hehe I prefer seroquell over zyprexa, had like only 3days side-effects and when my dose went up, my side effects dissapeard.

    Structural similarity is not a safe way to predict the effects of many drugs. Etizolam can be quite a comfortable experience, while olanzapine has a host of potentially unpleasant, damaging and life threatening negative effects. Etizolam is a gabba agonist, while olanzapine acts as an antagonist at dopamine D1, D2, D4, serotonin 5-HT2 and muscarinic receptors.

    Dopamine, serotonin and acetycholine blockade seems like the antithesis of fun. Olanzapine is an antipsychotic, all drugs in this group have a wide range of unpleasant and life-threatening effects. Some of these include parkinsonian-like movement disorders (both acute and ongoing), sudden cardiac death, neuroleptic malignant syndrome (a potentially fatal neurological disorder), coma in those with impaired livers, sexual dysfunction, dizziness, headaches, convulsions, blurred vision, tiredness and difficulty urinating.

    Other possible effects of olanzapine itself include; oedema, blood disorders, glaucoma, hair loss, diseases of the liver and pancreas, high cholesterol, urinary retention and priapsim. The last of these can cause lasting damage to erectile tissue.

    British National Formulary, July 2013.

    This drug has no recreational value and should only be used as prescribed.

    Apart from that first month or so where I felt like I'd been poisoned there has been no real noticeable negative effects after 13 years of use.

    That's not to say that there are some underlying conditions yet to show themselves. But with me doing my fasting routine I feel just as alive as I did when I wasn't on the pills.

    But my diagnosis was changed from schizophrenia to drug induced psychosis. I get auditory hallucinations after prolonged stimulant use and lack of sleep. But with this new understanding of my condition I'm more determined to be drug free so that eventually I will not need the zyprexa which is now generic in most cases for me.

    I've come off them before and not even been on any drugs for years and even alcohol and I got travel sickness really bad while driving the car!

    I just created this account to lmfao at punkpanda.... They started me out on 5mg was so sick I lost 60 pounds in 2 weeks they thought I had cancer but tests came back negative so they thought I was depressed I guess I was. This stuff is great I love it. When I first started taking it I remember having out of body experiences very weird feeling kind of scary but they thought I needed more so now I'm on 10mg a day and I feel better than I ever have in my entire life and eating, shiiiiiiiit like a hippo everything and anything put it in front of me and watch it disappear all of my family makes fun of me it's a little disconcerting because I am slowly working my way back up to 230 #'s I was around 145 ish when I started taking it a couple of months ago and now I'm 170 ish... And sex drive "forget about it" not happening here I didn't have much anyway but now I'm lucky to rub one off once a month I consider myself lucky if I can rub off 2..... But I tried all the others respiradall- shouldn't be on the f-ing market they need to outlaw that crap fast serequil- just made me crazy and tired... Zyprexa- makes me lazy like I have no energy to do anything but if I want to bad enough I can and will. And my mood is unlike anything I have ever experienced before(normality?) Is a lot like I would imagine normal people feel like everyday... As far as abusing it goes idk I haven't tried to but I imagine u could seeing as how I felt when I first started it.

    Just wanted to post and point out that it is NOT in the same class as etizolam. I figured Id correct this before people abuse this drug thinking it is.
    Etizolam is a
    Thienotriazolodiazepine
    NOT
    Thienobenzodiazepine
