Mylan announced the launch of Olanzapine Orally Disintegrating Tablets (ODT), the generic version of Eli Lilly’s Zyprexa Zydis.

Zyprexa Zydis is a thienobenzodiazepine indicated for the treatment of schizophrenia or the acute treatment of manic or mixed episodes associated with bipolar I disorder and maintenance treatment of bipolar I disorder. The exact mechanism of action in schizophrenia and bipolar I disorder is unknown but it has been proposed that its efficacy in schizophrenia is mediated through a combination of dopamine and serotonin type 2 (5HT2) antagonism.
