ZYPREXA belongs to a group of medicines called antipsychotics. It’s used to treat a disease with symptoms such as hearing, seeing or sensing things which are not there, mistaken beliefs, unusual suspiciousness and becoming withdrawn. People with this disease may also feel depressed, anxious or tense.
Always take ZYPREXA exactly as your doctor has told you. You should check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.
Your doctor will tell you how many ZYPREXA tablets to take and how long you should continue to take them. The daily dose of ZYPREXA is between 5 and 20 mg. Consult your doctor if your symptoms return but do not stop taking ZYPREXA unless your doctor tells you to.
