The Zyprexa Papers

Postby andrew112 » Wed Aug 03, 2022 12:41 am

I recently came across this book on Amazon and read the book description. The author, Alaskan attorney Jim Gottstein, said that he legally procured documents showing that Eli Lilly "concealed" that their highest-grossing drug, Zyprexa (Olanzapine), causes Diabetes and other life-shortening metabolic conditions. Despite Gottstein's spurious claim that he obtained these documents, called "The Zyprexa Papers", legally; the New York District Court of the East District in Brooklyn concluded that he must have conspired to get these documents. As a result, Eli Lilly threatened Gottstein with criminal contempt.

In the book's description on Amazon, it said that Gottstein provides a "riveting" account of what really happened, including new information that there is a group of psychiatric survivors who disseminated "The Zyprexa Papers" on the internet untraceably. However, it says that the exposure of "The Zyprexa Papers" was made possible through the ordeal of one patient survivor, Bill Bigley. How can one patient's experience provide the entire basis of the drug's efficacy and potential adverse effects? IMO, the author just wants curious people to spend $17.79 for a 272-page account of "what really happened". I am on the drug Zyprexa (Olanzapine). And while, yes, the medication does have side-effects and potential adverse reactions, the benefits of the medicine outweigh the risks/effects.
