Zyprexa was given to me in addition to my present Xanax script, due to added stress in my life. It made my tongue swell, but I don't remember it for sleeping purposes. They took me off it and upped my Xanax to 4 x's daily from. Hopefully other members have an answer for you.

Zyprexa is an anti Psychotic. While it does kinda 'wind you down' it is not generally perscribed for sleeping. I take 20 mg nightly for auditory hallucinations.W00t

I was on it for bipolar to help with my manic episodes. It can make you tired so maybe that's why it was given to you.
