    Was prescribed Zyprexa which has laundry list of side effects

    First of all I read all the literature about Zyprexa (olanzapine) is generic term is for antoipschotic and all the side effects associated. Not one word mentioned about sleeping aid. I am currently taking Ativan for anxiety and doctor told me along time ago that I can take my Ativan at bedtime for sleeping. I never take it during the day. The effects wore off I believe but lately it seems a long time to fall asleep. I asked him if he can raise the dose of Ativan, instead he prescribed Zyprexa which I disagree with that choice of med for sleep. Does anyone agree with me.
