It works by blocking receptors on the nerves of the brain for several neurotransmitters, and it binds to alpha-1, dopamine, histamine H-1, muscarinic, and serotonin type 2 (5-HT2) receptors. It is used to treat schizophrenia and acute manic episodes associated with the bipolar 1 disorder. Source: Regenstrief Institute

LP18087-4   OLANZapine
Olanzapine (brand name Zyprexa) is an atypical antipsychotic used to treat the symptoms of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder in adults and teenagers 13 years of age and older. It works by changing the activity of certain natural substances in the brain. Olanzapine is not approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of behavior disorders in older adults with dementia as there is an increased risk of stroke and death during treatment.
