Because of the risk of certain side effects that could occur in a nursing infant the manufacturer of Zyprexa does not recommend taking the drug while breastfeeding. There have been reports of a problems when breastfeeding mothers took Zyprexa since it is a known fact that Zyprexa passes to the infant from breast milk.
The Obamacare bill funds clinical studies on pregnant mothers and psychiatric drugs not because it is the advent of an exciting new field but because the emerging demographics of 25-30 year old gals who have been vaccinated 39 times by the time they were 6 years old, with upward of 15 of those vaccine containing mercury (thimerosal), are actually vaccine injured, not mentally ill. The Holy Grail of vaccines will not be undermined. Consequently these gals are misdiagnosed early on in their lives as bi polar, ADHD or have bouts of depression. They have been placed on these drugs by an errant establishment since adolescence or even pre-adolescence. The concern by the establishment is that it is dangerous to take these women off of these drugs when they get pregnant or when they breast feed.

Zyprexa is well known to cause diabetes. Its manufacturer has paid more than a billion dollars in lawsuit claims. Since Zyprexa passes through the breast milk from a dosage relative to 140 lb women, why would it be safe for a tiny infant of 9 lbs to receive Zyprexa served up in a measurement of milk? Mayo clinic describes the following psyche drug related effects on pregnant women just for starters: Citalopram (Celexa) is associated with a rare but serious newborn lung problem (persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn, or PPHN) when taken during the last half of pregnancy. Yet amazingly so, Mayo Clinic recommends that it still be consider as an option during pregnancy; Fluoxetine (Prozac, Sarafem) is associated with PPHN when taken during the last half of pregnancy-consider as an option during pregnancy; Paroxetine (Paxil)associated with fetal heart defects when taken during the first three months of pregnancy. Avoid during pregnancy; Sertraline (Zoloft) is associated with PPHN when taken during the last half of pregnancy. Consider as an option during pregnancy. Tricyclic antidpressants: Amitriptylin suggests a risk of limb malformation in early studies, but not confirmed with newer studies-consider as an option during pregnancy; Nortriptyline (Pamelor) suggests a risk of limb malformation in early studies, but not confirmed with newer studies-consider as an option during pregnancy. Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs): Phenelzine (Nardil) may cause a severe increase in blood pressure that triggers a stroke. Avoid during pregnancy; Tranylcypromine (Parnate) may cause a severe increase in blood pressure that triggers a stroke. Avoid during pregnancy.
Since research is still being done, I think it would be prudent not to breastfeed under the circumstances.
