    Zyprexa for Schizophrenia

    Hello, I have been on 5mg Zyprexa for about 2 months and have gained 5kg since then. In addition, I feel a bit weak and listless, but that may not be due to the drug. But it helps against the delusions. Now I’m wondering if I can reduce the dose or try another medicine, because I do not want to continue to gain weight. Especially in the late afternoon and evening I get cravings, against which I do not arrive.

    Zyprexa for Schizophrenia

    I took Zyprexa for 8 months. During this period, my menstrual period has completely stopped and I have gained about 5 kg. The dosage was always reduced during this period. I started with 20mg, then 15, 10 and finally 5 mg. Even after discontinuation of the drug, my menstrual period was still for 5 months. After discontinuing the drug, unfortunately, negative symptoms have developed, such as: negative thoughts, listlessness, depression. My psychiatrist has now prescribed me Abilify in conjunction with Tavor. Now I’m feeling better again – let’s see what other medicines bring.

    Zyprexa for Schizophrenia; Obsessive compulsive disorder

    At first I only got (inpatient) Zyprexa prescribed-whereby the medical doctor who had also-as it seemed to me-had used out of a trial mood paired with helplessness. But he did a little luck with it. At least if you have already tried almost all atypicals with mostly strong side effects (like constant resting heart rate above 100 (with Seroquel), restlessness (with Solian), parkinsonoid (with Abilify and Risperdal).) Then again about 6 weeks after the inpatient discharge psychotic I then spent more than three years tinkering with the dose of Zyprexa (between 5mg-30mg) in order to deal with the remaining compulsive impulses, but on this Zyprexa had no effect, so I started taking Lorazepam ( However, this has only dampened the fears associated with the obsessive-compulsive impulses / thoughts.Finally, I have discontinued the antidepressant Cymbalta before half-a-half (actually unsuitable for schizophrenia with obsessive-compulsive impulses) and replaced with sertraline (also here maximum ambulant dose 200mg) and that has then completely shot down my bird he rarely (not at all) in frightening situations of coercion and have for a half year a constant dose of 10mg Zyprexa, 200mg Sertraline and 2mg Lorazepam (Tavor). Since then, I have no more mental limitations and do not waste any time trying out anything new, let alone rummaging back on the dose (that’s pure poison!). Note, of course, I also had the strong compulsory weight gain of Zyprexa: from 60Kg on up to 82kg – today I am constantly between 73kg-75kg.
