The Zyprexa Papers

According to mainstream psychiatry (and the pharmaceutical companies that provide funding to psychiatry, especially in the USA’s mainly privatised system of healthcare), some prescribed drugs treat alleged chemical imbalances in the brain – imbalances which, it is claimed, are a major feature of many mental illnesses. Zyprexa (containing olanzapine) is one such drug – an antipsychotic medication that, for instance, is used to treat the symptoms of ‘schizophrenia’ and ‘bipolar disorder’ in adults and children who are at least 13 years old.

The Zyprexa Papers is a book written by Jim Gottstein. The publishers say:

“On December 17, 2006, The New York Times began a series of front-page stories about documents obtained from Alaska lawyer Jim Gottstein, showing Eli Lilly had concealed that its top-selling drug caused diabetes and other life-shortening metabolic problems. The “Zyprexa Papers,” as they came to be known, also showed Eli Lilly was illegally promoting the use of Zyprexa on children and the elderly, with particularly lethal effects. Although Mr. Gottstein believes he obtained the Zyprexa Papers legally, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York in Brooklyn decided he had conspired to steal the documents, and Eli Lilly threatened Mr. Gottstein with criminal contempt charges. In The Zyprexa Papers, Mr. Gottstein gives a riveting first-hand account of what really happened, including new details about how a small group of psychiatric survivors spread the Zyprexa Papers on the Internet untraceably. All of this within a gripping, plain-language explanation of complex legal maneuvering and his battles on behalf of Bill Bigley, the psychiatric patient whose ordeal made possible the exposure of the Zyprexa Papers …”
