Olanzapine Long-Acting Injection (LAI) Efficacy and Safety Data Presented at American Psychiatric Association Annual Meeting
Date:5/18/2009

nts taking Zyprexa should be monitored regularly for worsening of glucose control. Patients starting treatment with Zyprexa should undergo fasting blood glucose testing at the beginning of treatment and periodically during treatment. Any patient treated with atypical antipsychotics should be monitored for symptoms of hyperglycemia including polydipsia, polyuria, palyphagia and weakness. Patients who develop symptoms of hyperglycemia during treatment should undergo fasting blood glucose testing.

Undesirable alterations in lipids have been observed with Zyprexa use. Clinical monitoring, including baseline and follow-up lipid evaluations in patients using Zyprexa, is advised. Significant, and sometimes very high, elevations in triglyceride levels and modest mean elevations in total cholesterol have been observed with Zyprexa use.

Potential consequences of weight gain should be considered prior to starting Zyprexa. Patients receiving Zyprexa should receive regular monitoring of weight.

As with all antipsychotic treatment, prescribing should be consistent with the need to minimize Tardive Dyskinesia (TD). The risk of developing TD and the likelihood that it will become irreversible are believed to increase as the duration of treatment and the total cumulative dose of antipsychotic increase. The syndrome may remit, partially or completely, if antipsychotic treatment is withdrawn.

Zyprexa may induce orthostatic hypotension associated with dizziness, tachycardia, bradycardia, and in some patients, syncope, especially during the initial dose-titration period. Particular caution should be used in patients with known cardiovascular disease, cerebrovascular diseases, or those predisposed to hypotension.

Other potentially serious adverse events include seizures, elevated prolactin levels, elevated liver enzymes, cognitive and motor impairment, body temperature elevation and trouble swallowing
