I need to know what the side effects are while taking Zyprexa 20 mg. I read about the side effects once you stop taking it, but can any proffesional tell me what the side effects are while on the medication.

Hi my partner has taken zyprexa from 20mg-40mg amongst several other types of antipsychotics throughout the years for his schizophrenia and it is the only one he got no side effects from and if he had to chose it would be that one. Unfortunately he doesn't have choice and has been told he will have to stay on a depot injection indefinately :-(
Try not to feel too bad, I think nearly all of us with mental illness end up needing to take meds indefinitely. There's only a select few or so I'm told who end up able to go off of meds and this is also only if their life has no stress in it but who has a life like that these days?
