    Zyprexa for Depression

    I have been taking Zyprexa since September 2010. I got the drug in closed psychiatry. At the beginning of treatment I had dizziness and great apettit. I had a constant feeling of hunger and was not fed up at all. My starting dose was 10 mg / day. One year later, in the summer of 2011, I tried for the first time to sneak away Zyprexa due to side effects. I was totally stunned, had no feelings and total loss of libido. I slowly reduced it, from 10 mg to 7.5 mg, 5 mg, 2.5 mg, 1 month each, and then I completely shed Zyprexa. In the beginning it was still fine, but when I was 2.5 mg, I felt dogs miserable. I had strong convulsions when falling asleep and waking up, even cramping while falling asleep and dyskinesia when waking up. These were spasmodic twitches throughout my body that I could not control. I also had sleep problems and diarrhea. When I completely deposed Zyprexa of 2.5mg, which was probably too fast, I had breathlessness. My stomach was so inflated that I could not breathe properly. I was so sick of the withdrawal symptoms that I became severely depressed and had suicidal thoughts. Wg. The shortness of breath, I even had to call the ambulance. Then I took Zyprexa again on the advice of a psychiatrist in the university hospital and increased until the withdrawal symptoms were gone. The most persistent were the dyskinesias. The result was that I ended up taking 15 mg Zyprexa, not just 10 mg as before. In 2011, I tried 2x to drop off Zyprexa, with the same serious withdrawal symptoms. In September 2012, I had to go to the clinic for alcohol withdrawal and had the Zyprexa reduced from 15 mg to 5 mg / day. This was still reasonably good, i. I had diarrhea for over 6 weeks. I had the family doctor examine a stool sample to rule out another cause of the diarrhea. In December 2012, I further reduced to 2.5 mg and had again falling asleep and waking very strong cramps, twitching, throughout the body and sometimes even on the face, these were dyskinesias and diarrhea again. The cramps were uncontrollable and only got better when I got out of bed and did gymnastics. The dyskinesia were gone after breakfast. Then I raised myself again to 15 mg. The result was that I still had mild cramps when falling asleep and waking up. When waking up, the cramps were worse and lasted longer than falling asleep. On 18.01.2013 I tried again and again reduced to 5 mg. I had the convulsions unchanged. Yesterday I further reduced to 2.5 mg and took on the recommendation of the pharmacist 400 mg of magnesium per day. That helped me, the cramps got better, but of course I’m not free of it. I still have diarrhea. I am very worried that the dyskinesia will get even worse as I reduced it to 2.5 mg only yesterday. Since I reduced to 2.5 mg, I also have sleep problems, fall asleep and wake up every 2 hours. I told my psychiatrist from the University of Dyskinesia that he was completely at a loss and said I am the first patient to report this. I reduce the Zyprexa only after at least 2-3 months, provided that I no longer have any withdrawal symptoms. Then I try to halve the 2.5 mg with the kitchen knife to 1.25 mg. I wish I had never got the devil’s stuff. The psychiatrist, who originally gave me this in the hospital (closed psychiatry) because of a trauma, I would like to sue. The Zyprexa totally stunned me, I had no feelings at all, no positives either. My libido was also lost and my orgasm ability. I felt completely empty inside. I can only warn everyone. Today I have 25 kg overweight of the stuff.

    Zyprexa for Hallucinations; Depression

    had taken Zyprexa, Ciatyl, Tavor, Valium, Rohypnol during a hospital treatment against my will in 2005. With this compulsory medication, particularly with Ciatyl, very severe movement disorders developed. My head wanted to break away from my own neck, better said, my facial muscles were out of control and the tongue muscles, the salivation was unstoppable. At the same time, my neck swelled unpredictably and at times was only able to wheeze for help and I cramped on my knees and in all directions to the ward doctor because I almost suffocated. My shoulders also somehow pressed against my chest and lungs. Every meter felt like 1km. This Ciatyl D was injected into IM for 4-5 days on depot! Tavor made me feel drunk and numb in my mind, as if your thoughts were starting to squint and can not recognize anything. I was not allowed to depose Zyprexa, I was even put in my mouth during a forced fixation, as I spit it out again I got injected half an hour later with 500mg of Valium -Ciatyl intramuscularly. When this was finally flushed out, I was forced to continue to take Zyprexa orally, otherwise the Memminger senior physician Dr. med. Roth me Ciatyl continue to inject depot. At first, you do not get the effect, then subtle sensations slow down. Plants and flowers that normally give you a cozy feeling, through their aesthetics and creativity of our nature, are no longer perceived as living. It defused my individual relation to this zest for life and energy source – it made me duller day by day – for 30 days against my will! For this I have about 20 kilos in 3 weeks increased – even involuntary -but the hunger feeling was unbreakable. When I was finally able to decide to stop my inpatient treatment myself, I did so immediately and canceled Zyprexa. For the first two weeks I thought I was missing something in my chest – myself! I can not describe it differently, but that’s exactly what I felt. As if my soul had been shot through my chest with a cannonball. At the same time there was a feeling of being on it, which is pressed down like a spring, springs back under tension and makes you consciously punch into your stomach. Honestly, until today I just do not feel like the one I used to be, or my natural evolution would have taken a different course. The Rohypnol Schlamittel definitely makes you tired but it just makes you light in the brain and causes extreme memory gaps and disorientation since the end of 2009 until today I have dyskinesias that have developed from one day to the other. First, my legs beat out uncontrollably and the entire lower extremities, my head exploded to the side or I shake myself like a dog coming out of the water for a few seconds. I have that as well as every day or evening and at night when you relax, it occurs most often – at times very violent -when the joint explodes to the bone stop. The cause of these symptoms could not be clarified by the doctor and I was sent back to the psychiatrist. The cause could be RLS or Tourette’s syndrome, but for me there is definitely an irreconsible late dyskinesia (non-reversible movement disorders) in question. In any case, such movement disturbances never occurred before the Ciatyl D medication. This certainly does not treat anybody – whether human or animal. The derzeiitigen Unterbirngungsgesetze stink to the sky, the Bavarian forward! who compensates me appropriately now? -in today pensioners, welfare recipients and AU? Kto.Nr and BLZ I inform you on request!

    Zyprexa for Psychosis

    Within 2 months 15kg increased. Initial weight 50kg. Unstable appetite for carbohydrates. Extreme tiredness, muscle twitching, Parkinson’s symptoms, emotional flattening (like zombie), feeling of constant overstimulation (daylight too glaring), loss of libido, general feeling loss (Could not rejoice, do not mourn, not laugh at what is actually funny falling in love with the ingestion, the feeling of being in love completely disappeared after taking it, came back after weaning) Eye problems (sharp vision only possible with volitional effort) After 2 1/2 months high fever, muscle tone greatly increased, back muscles stiff as a board, tremor , Headache, feeling like plugging in a socket. Malinges neuroleptic syndrome noted had to settle immediately, mortal danger. After weaning extreme insomnia over three weeks, just rumgelegen and dozed and sleep came only gradually. Vomiting, blood pressure fluctuations, fevers, weakness, difficulty concentrating. Extreme headache, Tinitus like station concourse, Terrible Parkinson’s symptomatology. Extreme fear that felt like it was purely physical and had nothing to do with the psyche (Quote: I’m terribly scared but the mood is eigendlich quite ok) Feeling like the brain on a grill (skull hum) The feeling for me but it was back quickly, luckily. Weaning symptoms like heroin withdrawal, only worse and longer. Only slowly got better after half a year. Anxiety attacks, inner restlessness, extreme weakness. Doctor said something about mental exhaustion. Now after 1 1/2 years I am largely restored. Residual depression, also triggered by difficult social situation. The psychosis that I had before taking, which lasted 7 days and was caused by a drug intolerance to antibiotics, I did not come back. I’m in psychotherapeutic treatment for six months because of PTSD. Slight Parkinson’s symptoms and tinnitus in excitement is left over and hopefully goes away as well. All in all, Zyprexa was the worst thing that ever happened to me in life. Incidentally, the psychosis was already gone after taking one (!) Tavor. First of all, I slept more or less for almost 4 days and, according to friends and my own assessment, was clearly in the head again. (Lack of disease insight in all involved !? * Bissel irony on the edge *) Nevertheless, Zyprexa was dosed to 20mg / day, which was completely overdosed at my body weight. According to psychiatrist, I would need the protection. At that time I am up to five months of taking high-dose St. John’s wort drug-free and come out clear. Quality of life trend rising. All in all, I’m glad to have survived that. Sometimes not much was missing.
