Zyprexa (Olanzapine)

Zyprexa is known to be a psychotropic medication which is popularly used for treating symptoms associated with bipolar disorder (commonly called as manic depression). The generic drug goes by the name Olanzapine. It works by changing the quantities of neurotransmitters in the Central Nervous System to bring about positive changes in cognition, perception, and mood. It belongs to a class known as atypical antipsychotics. It can also be prescribed to patients suffering from schizophrenia. Other psychological disorders can also be treated with the help of this medication in combination with certain other psychotropic drugs. People with such severe disorders experience hallucinations and this drug tries to reduce its intensity to the minimum. Eli Lily was the one to introduce Zyprexa for the first time in 1982.
