Why is this medication prescribed?

Olanzapine extended-release injection is used to treat schizophrenia (a mental illness that causes disturbed or unusual thinking, loss of interest in life, and strong or inappropriate emotions). Olanzapine injection is used to treat episodes of agitation in people who have schizophrenia or in people who have bipolar I disorder (manic depressive disorder; a disease that causes episodes of depression, episodes of severe mania, and other abnormal moods) and are experiencing an episode of mania (abnormally excited or irritated mood). Olanzapine is in a class of medications called atypical antipsychotics. It works by changing the activity of certain natural substances in the brain.

How should this medicine be used?

Olanzapine injection and olanzapine extended-release injection come as powders to be mixed with water and injected into a muscle by a healthcare provider. Olanzapine injection is usually given as needed for agitation. If you are still agitated after you receive your first dose, you may be given one or more additional doses. Olanzapine extended-release injection is usually given once every 2 to 4 weeks.

Olanzapine extended-release injection may help control your symptoms but will not cure your condition. Continue to keep appointments to receive olanzapine extended-release injection even if you feel well. Talk to your doctor if you do not feel like you are getting better during your treatment with olanzapine extended-release injection.
