How is Zyprexa Prescribed?
Zyprexa® must be prescribed by a licensed healthcare provider, usually a psychiatrist or a primary care physician. For the treatment of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, the recommended starting dose of Zyprexa® is usually 5-10 mg per day, taken once daily. The dose may be increased gradually over time, depending on the individual's response to the medication.
For the treatment of major depressive disorder (in combination with other medications), the recommended starting dose of Zyprexa® for adults is usually 5 to 10-milligrams per day. The dose may be increased gradually over time, depending on the individual's response to the medication.
It's important to follow your healthcare provider's instructions carefully when taking Zyprexa®, and to attend regular check-ups to monitor your progress and any potential side effects. Don't stop taking Zyprexa® or adjust your dosage without first consulting with your healthcare provider.
