    Zyprexa for Post-traumatic stress disorder

    In addition to a strong weight gain of 30 kg in three years, a tormenting nervousness paralleled an excessive drowsiness. Participation in lectures at the university was largely impossible because the patient constantly fell asleep against his will. Reading and learning were also largely impossible under the medication, as the drug forces patients to suffer from agonizing sleep attacks all day long. The nervousness with an inability to sit still was accompanied by restless legs and severe joint pain. The quality of life sank considerably, the psycho-traumatic sleep disorders did not improve, but worsened constantly, nightmares and bingeing made every night a journey through hell. Even years after discontinuing Zyprexa, the after effects of side effects are still significant. The impairments caused by the drug have been at a high level for years.

    Zyprexa for Sleep disorders

    I felt like a mental patient all the time until I realized that these are the side effects of the drug – extreme panic disorder. No wonder the patients are suicidal – I am convinced that it is the wrong medical treatment. As a result of my own initiative, I stopped the treatment and luckily did not end up in a sheltered workshop. At that time I still lived in Munich.

    Side effects: Panic attacks

    Due to an overnight sleep disturbance and associated hallucinations, I was sent by the GP to the psychiatric ward – tranquilizers helped quickly, so I could sleep again. Furthermore, I was forced to take Zyprexa (taking the tablets under supervision) Fortunately, I was able to get out of the clinic (Munich Haar) after just one week. Doctors were hardly addressable there, just a social worker who cleared the inmates to the table and clean ashtray, etc. animated. I have been recommended psychotherapy – in the last 10 years I have reduced it to just under 500 therapy sessions, where I am still wondering Does this really have to be about talking about neurotic conflicts? At least better than a silent therapist who has written my monologues hour after hour, where I can only say afterwards that time I could have used more meaningfully I was in the end more confused than at the beginning … I think, here can the public health insurance a lot of money save – that’s even shorter. After all, I had a point of contact, because the side effects of the drug Zyprexa were still considerable: hellish anxiety, 15 kg gaining weight, difficulty swallowing … I was so insecure that I have swallowed the drugs well. Apart from the severe side effects, I have not found any effectiveness of the drug! The blood test at the Isar-Amper-Klinikum Munich was, in my opinion, too late – 2 days later.

I was after taking the tablet is no longer the one I was, mendacious unreliable, etc. If I made commitments I did not comply. Lazy I am also . Following varieties I have through and only bad experience (never again) Solian, cell dox, heydol, syroquell, Tavor, melperon, and I have only had bad experience. For weeks I have been off the tablets and take no zyprexa since this week more. All the side effects that I had with me are gone. There are new ones added and some of them can not be kept. Sluggishness, headache, aggressive, listless, restlessness. Advantage clear in the head. How long do these side effects last? Since I will never again swallow tablets, because it is a hell of a ride and it is very difficult to defend against it.

    Zyprexa for Psychosis

    I am a mother whose daughter, after taking this devil’s stuff, otherwise I can not name it, show serious changes in personality. I can no longer approach my child. It puts me under very bad conditions and after a short moment, my daughter is sorry again. That’s how it’s been for years. Recently she was with her GP and he prescribed another drug because of the fatigue in Zyprexa. She got a psychosis from the new stuff and had herself briefed in psychiatry for a short time. There, the new drug was discontinued and again prescribed Zyprexa. Now she is in a sea of emotions and perceptions that I’m seriously worried about my child. I wrote to the German Medical Association and asked for advice. I can not understand why doctors prescribe medications that destroy people.

    Side effects: Personality change

    Zyprexa for Psychosis

    Under Zyprexa extreme weight gain despite little food, within days by several kilos. Self-alienation. Mentally unstable, white remotely controlled. I’m still working on overweight, although I have not been taking Zyprexa for 1 year. Haldol very quickly took the delusions – with me in small doses. I feel like normal with it. It makes no change in weight, but with prolonged intake feeling cold, emotional reduced. Have Haldol dripped out drop by drop and would use it again as an emergency medication.

    Zyprexa for Psychosis

    The drug helped me a lot. It slows me down in the right places. Otherwise it would be overflowing with me. Disadvantages are with my diabetes, which is difficult to adjust. For this you have to adjust the dose over and over again to the situation. Adverse effects include adverse memory and memory, poor concentration and response.

    Zyprexa for Psychosis

    Zyprexa slows down the ability to react enormously (driving a car is actually forbidden!) And I have increased (despite fewer meals) very strongly (up to 15kg). You feel like you are drunk. Besides, I was always very tired and beaten off. Coffee did not bring anything! The side effects were worse than actually the drug should help! Okay, there were patients who tolerated the drug, I did not …

    I got the drug because of my anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder. An improvement did not occur with the intake, I put about 5-10 kg. Since I was dissatisfied with the results, my doctor introduced me now to Zeldox …. I’m curious ….

    Zyprexa for Psychosis

    my diabetes was covered up. I was often told that my blood sugar was slightly elevated because I eat too much sweet food. There is no psychiatrist in Germany who informs patients about the actual side effects. I can only advise every patient who has been prescribed Zyprexa to sued his doctor or doctors for compensation. the zyprexa poison is already known since 1997. even in this health community is nothing of the side effects. this page has certainly developed German doctors. and German doctors are something very primitive.

    Side effects: Diabetes
