    From one of his FB friends:

    R.I.P. Anthony Tyus. You will be missed. Sleep easy, brother. Sleep easy. The demons in your head should be calm now.

    His last post points to suicide. Unless someone accessed his account and edited it. He's smiling and playing on a skateboard, but what he wrote was a definite goodbye to everyone.

    I saw that but it looks to have been posted the day after he passed.

    So they think that it was an accident, and that he didn't intentionally OD off his Zyprexa? Can you take too many accidently?

    I supposed you can OD on just about any drug if you take enough. They say accident.

    Unfortunately Zyprexa can cause neuroleptic toxicity / neuroleptic malignant syndrome in certain circumstances unrelated to intentional overdose . In the patients I saw that had Zyprexa related toxicity they died from heat stroke because toxicity causes high fever.

    Oh wow. Thanks for the info. I don't know anything about it, but that sounds scary!

    Thanks for the explanation, AIA. I see how it would be possible to "accidentally" overdose. I'm not familiar with this drug, are there any recreational benefits?

    He seems well loved and happy, but that doesn't explain the final goodbye post on his FB page.

    Rest in peace, Anthony...

    It only takes like 4-7 pills to OD from Zyprexa.
