    Zyprexa
    Olanzapine is an antipsychotic medication. It works by changing the actions of chemicals in the brain. Olanzapine is used to treat the symptoms of psychotic conditions such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder (manic depression). Olanzapine may also be used for other purposes.

    If you are on this drug and taking it everyday it will obviously stay in
    your body. Drinking at all while on this medication is EXTREMELY
    dangerous. It doesn't matter when you took your last dosage.
    It's even especially MORE dangerous if you want to get drunk
    (drinking more than 1-3 drinks or more just to get drunk)
    Doing this can lead to MAJOR complications like black-outs, acting
    or doing things and not remembering a thing, convulsions, seizures
    and even death. Your Doctor should have explained all this to you.
    Not to mention that you're messing with a powerful drug that is
    used in treatments from Bi-polar, manic bi-polar to schizophrenia.

    I cant tell you what to do, only give you information so you can decide
    for yourself what type of consequences you're willing to endure.
    I hope you weigh them carefully and choose to stay on your medication.
    Drinking and/or using any other mind altering substance will really
    mess with your treatment. Then if your Doctor doesn't know what your
    doing and adjusts your dosage, this can be fatal.

    So like I said I'm just giving you facts of information. I don't know
    what your dosage is or what exactly you have been prescribed for.
    Please be careful.

    Hope this helps.

  4. Thank you very much for the info, SwayGirl, I had no idea it'd be that serious to drink while on this drug. Good thing I didn't.
