The FDA says the two patients died three to four days after receiving injections of the drug, formally called Zyprexa Relprevv, and it is unclear what caused the deaths. The agency noted the drug contains warnings that it could cause post-injection delirium sedation syndrome in which the drug enters the bloodstream too fast and causes heavy sedation and possible delirium.
