How should I store Zyprexa?

You should store Zyprexa (olanzapine) at room temperature, away from light and moisture -- not in a bathroom, where steam from the bath or shower could affect it. Keep it tightly closed in its original container, and put it where children can't see it or reach it. If you take the dissolving tablet form, Zyprexa Zydis, do not remove a tablet from the package until you're ready to take it. Zyprexa is an antipsychotic medication for treating schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
