    Zyprexa for Drive disorders; Depression

    So the remedy works relatively well, but I have increased 3.5 kg within 7 days after only 7 days! I advise everyone from the drug, which does not necessarily want to increase! Because an increase in weight is 100% sure.

    Side effects: Increase in weight

    Zyprexa for Drive disorders; Sleep disorders

    For about 1 1/2 years I take Zyprexa because of a psychosis. At the beginning, the dose was 10 mg / day. I was able to reduce the dose to 2.5 mg, but increasingly suffer from sleep disorders and listlessness. In addition, I have now got significant upper abdominal pain. This could indicate a pancreatitis. There are other critical reviews on the commercialization of Zyprexa. These raise considerable concerns about the use of Zyprexa. Everyone affected should actually be made aware of these risks before taking them.

    Side effects: Sleep disorders; Listlessness

    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 Trauma

    On 03.12.2000 I had a car accident with cerebral hemorrhage and was in a coma for 3 weeks. My first memories are from my Sofort Reha in Pulsnitz. At that time I was an acute patient in a closed ward. I got carbmazepine and an unknown amount of olanzapine (Zyprexa). I guess it was more than 50mg olanzapine or even more I got the day. My normal weight was about 70kg and I weighed through the Zyprexa suddenly over 80kg. The solution was on the package leaflet of Zyprexa, greater hunger and water retention. I did not have a stomach, but my whole body was crisp without end. My ass and wow. The side effect and one does his liver so nothing good. (Liver enlargement) My doctor told me that the Zyprexa produces female hormones and in my dosage beyond 30 mg my face has become rounder, the butt looked crisp, and looked just great. The side effects and one should renounce sex (you can not get high) and the eating behavior mutates into a feeding behavior. On the stuff and me on station and I have filled the rolls without end. The hunger feeling was the bright madness. Currently I’m still taking Zyprexa but my current 10mg Olanzapin and there is still synonymous with the sexuality. At the moment I weigh 86kg but this is just a little bit fatter. mfg Thomas (if you have questions, mail to supatommy1804@yahoo.de)

    slight weight gain (5kg), helps against nausea !, slightly gefuehlsminimierend, immediately settle (I’ve tried) I could not sleep (so I’ll take it) and had the feeling to be evil, somehow with the evil and something … 🙂 but it will soon try to reduce from 10 to 7.5mg, then the settling is certainly more pleasant.

    Zyprexa for Mania; Bipolar disorder

    At the beginning of treatment with Zyprexa I had a slight headache with dizziness. In addition, the treatment with Zyprexa increased my weight by about 15 kg, which is not so bad because I was underweight. The dizziness has passed by now. Actually, I am quite satisfied with Zyprexa. In manic episodes it helps me very well. But the depressive symptoms can be reduced by Zyprexa and I sleep much better, because Zyprexa also makes me a little tired.

    Zyprexa for Delusion; Depression

    My experience with Zyprexa and Zoloft is great, I became a new person through it. Unfortunately, not everyone can say that, as I have to read here in this forum. Anyway, all positive main effects have occurred and only 1 side effect: 23 kg weight gain. I did not care, because I always had 20 kg too little for my length anyway; now I have normal weight and my soul does not suffer anymore. Although it is a bit of a strange life, if you are only well with medication and I do not know how long my body will participate. But I rather say short and well lived than long and shitty. My liver values, blood count and so are top, all in the NB. But I can not make a recommendation because everyone reacts differently. And as far as the price – performance ratio is concerned, does a drug have to be so porky ??? Eli Lilly is fine, lol!

    Side effects: Increase in weight

    Zyprexa for Delusion

    Due to a fear and panic disorder with delusional thoughts that made me almost impossible to feed, I came to a psychosomatic clinic. Relatively quickly, the doctors came to the conclusion that zyprexa is the right medicine for me. I thought about it for a long time, also because of all the horror stories in the net. In the end, I relied on my doctors and, out of desperation, started on 2.5 mg. The dose was gradually increased to 7.5 mg. What is still relatively low doses. I deeply regret taking this medicine. I do not think it helped me either. The side effects were bad. I was a zombie! I only wanted to sleep and I slept long and comatose. In the evenings, after taking zyprexa, I hardly had any memory in the morning. I was disinterested in everything. Could not concentrate. Do not read. I watched an unpretentious series again and again, for 2 years. The weight gain was limited in my case, but can absolutely understand that it is in some people totally exhausted. And although I was really paralyzed, I still had strong anxiety. I had little desire for sex and I could not get an orgasm anymore. My partner finally wanted me to sell this drug. I had taken the time to retreat for three quarters of a year. Slowly I have lowered the dosage and first observed a few weeks, how I am. At first it was always worse, but that settled again. The big hammer came only when I wanted to sell it completely. Again and again I had to start again with a small dose. From my psychiatrist (where you have to say definitely that you no longer want, otherwise you take forever) I have zyprexa (olanzapine) prescribed in drops, so as to let the dose even smaller crawl. When I let the last drop, my partner disposed of the drug once and for all. 3 months strong withdrawal symptoms! I could barely eat any food and when she came out right away. I was in the hospital for a week to inject fluids intravenously. Plus: heavy dizziness, restlessness, thought-rush, panic, trembling, depression … It was worse than anything ever before. I have not taken it for two years now. I’m overjoyed and strongly advise everyone against it. Without my partner I would take zyprexa today. Alone, I would not have made it mentally and physically!

    Side effects: Libido loss; Fatigue

    Zyprexa for Anorexia

    I got the drug imposed on my third hospital stay, because I had no positive weight history, but after many weeks was still below the intake weight. Allegedly, the drug should interrupt my thoughts and allow me to gain weight, with me the influence on the metabolism was concealed and concealed in direct demand. After taking the Zyprexas, the side effects immediately set in, I fell asleep in the middle of the day while others told me something while sitting down. My weight went up, but that may be related to the nutritional plan. Unfortunately, I did not experience the positive effect against thought circles.

    Side effects: Fatigue
