In order to be treated with Zyprexa Relprevv (olanzapine), a injectable drug for schizophrenia, you will have to enroll in the Zyprexa Relprevv Patient Care Program. The goal of the program is to reduce the drug's dangers, which include severe drowsiness, confusion, seizures or even coma, particularly within the first three hours after an injection. The program requires that injections be given by qualified healthcare providers at a medical facility, where you must remain for at least three hours for monitoring after receiving the drug. Your doctor, healthcare facility and pharmacist also must enroll in the program.
