    Zyprexa for Obsessive compulsive disorder

    I got Zyprexa against compulsory acts. I should rest with it. For me BPS is based on the most extreme anxiety and panic attacks, which drove me almost insane and the constraints became more extreme. Suicidal thoughts have been with me since my childhood. I can control her pretty well now, but she does not want to. Have already several suicide attempts behind me. And now Zyprexa? I do not know why, but everywhere, where in the mode of action is strongly sedating, everything seems just totally the opposite. I do not get a bit quiet, can not sleep, take against restlessness and panic Alprazolam. The side effects of Zyprexa have been enough for me these days. I will drop it today without a doctor. Because I noticed and again expected that, just like with countless antidepressants, which should act as a sedentary, just this effect never occurred, but this sufficient side effects and especially increased suicidal thoughts that go so far or go, that I already I’m back at the plan. I’m already chronically suicidal anyway, and I do not have to give it that extra. At some point you just give up. What else should one take? Have also read a lot of testimonials on Zyprexa, which strengthens me in my decision, and before I take this stuff over months or even years and then undergo a withdrawal, I prefer to stop it sooner. Withdrawal is nothing nice, I’ve got through with Benzos. So do not have to go through the same again with Zyprexa.

    Side effects: Suicidal ideation; Insomnia

    Zyprexa for Psychosis

    I recommend nobody to take Zyprexa in the long term. It is very effective in the acute phase of psychosis. I came out with 5-10mg from the acute phase within 2 months. The short-term and long-term side effects are, however, glorifying and mostly unknown to psychiatrists or they just shove it into the wrong drawer. When I had my psychotic episode I lost my job and was put on Zyprexa 5 mg within 2 months I was out of the psyhose but I was still mentally ill. I had extreme anxiety that paralyzed me in my actions. An inner restlessness. As if you were going to explode. These side effects of Zyprexa have been added by my psychiatrist to schizophrenia. I just hope that he did not get better. Added to this were suicidal thoughts. I did not know those thoughts from before and also felt them to be absurd. But they kept coming up to me again and again. From my psychiatrist to the psychosis. When I started to work again, the anxiety, inner turmoil and suicidal thoughts became stronger. I reported about it to my psychiatrist and we increased the dose of Zyprexa. The higher the dosage of Zyprexa the worse the side effects. Increase of anxiety until it became unbearable. Suicidal thoughts were reinforced. The fatigue increased. Stiffness of the muscles. Twitching of the muscles, which were interpreted as restless leg. Electricity discharges in the brain that exploded like an explosion and then swept across the body. Depressions. Numbness on the whole body on the left side to the right, speech disorders. Stuttering, word-finding disorders. Lack of concentration. Dizziness. Weight gain. Incoordination. Narrowing of the visual field, perception disorders. (no psyhose but one takes his umwellt not true) extreme emotional blunting) I do not know what I should still pay. After 5 years I am a mental Wrak and my psychiatrist has put most of it on any other illnesses or pushed the psychosis itself. I was socially isolated because I did not get along with the situation. When I started taking Zyprexa, most of them were not known or published. Zyprexa can not be deposed like that either (my psychiatrist told me) you should steal it because the withdrawal symptoms are just as colorful as the side effects themselves. And still most of the side effects have not been published. Not even half of what you can read in the I-Net is in the pack. And only through the Internet, I realized that I am not alone with the side effects and the Zyprexa is the cause of all the suffering I went through. Zyprexa is suitable for the acute stage. For long term therapy definitely not. And do not get rid of your psychiatrist because that’s the psychosis or some other illness. Zyprexa makes these side effects.

    Zyprexa for Depression

    The abandonment of Zyprexa is hell. I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in September 2006, which later proved false. I then got the neuroleptic Zyprexa. In the beginning it was 5 mg. After the first name, I was fine, but it was not really good. In October 2006 I felt very bad again, I had very strong side effects. Zyprexa was changed to 2.5 mg, but I was getting worse, every day was terrible. I then got different dosages (15mg, 10mg, 7.5mg), but everything just got worse. Other medications were then tried out (Abilify, Amisulprid, Insidon, Zeldox), but I only felt worse, I only felt the side effects in all their violence. I just lay in bed in the totally darkened bedroom and wanted to die. Outside was wonderful summer weather, but I felt sick when I saw the blue sky. The suicidal thoughts were so strong that I was just planning how to end my life quickly. After several discussions with my doctor in psychiatry, he said that the drugs are paradoxical for me, I should not take them anymore. Also, Zyprexa was not correct, because I had neither a bipolar disorder nor a psychosis, but a depression. So I did not take anything anymore. After two days of exposure, I felt really bad, so I took another 2.5 mg of Zyprexa. It did not really improve me, but the withdrawal symptoms were not that strong. Now I only tried 2.5 mg Zyprexa every other day, which was reasonably well. I stayed for four weeks. Then I let them away completely, which was reasonably bearable. After three weeks without Zyprexa I felt very bad again, I lay in the darkened room all day and just wanted to die. My doctor said that was the withdrawal, I should go on. So I did not take Zyprexa, although I was feeling very bad. I could barely sleep, romped around in the bed and had terrible weaning symptoms (tachycardia, nausea, something like electrical shock through my body). My appetite was gone, I had to force myself to eat and that was very little. After another three weeks I felt a little better. Through Zyprexa I had become impotent, but this improved and the potency came back slowly. I have been taking no Zyprexa for eleven weeks and no other medications. I’m not feeling very well, but it gets better in very small steps. There is probably still a long way to go, but I have to go through it. I can only warn everyone to take Zyprexa if the diagnosis is not clear, but which doctor can do it. The risk of suicide in the weaning phase is very high and I’m still not free from it. My weight dropped from 88 kg to 81 kg during these eleven weeks, which I find positive.

    Zyprexa for Depression

    Take 2.5 mg, previously 5 mg attempts to sell Zyprexa for weeks, it’s hell. Still have strong side effects: Misperception, high blood pressure, impotence, suicidal thoughts. My doctor said that Zyprexa is not addictive, but the withdrawal symptoms are very strong. My doctor now wants to support me through discontinuing psychotherapy.
