    Zyprexa for Depression

    Elontril so far no side effects, but the cigarettes have not tasted me for several days. Elontril is also used for smoking cessation. Stop smoking, that was not what should be treated, yet a positive side effect. Zyprexa is not working properly yet, I hope that’s still to come or the dose needs to be increased.

    Side effects: No side effects

    Zyprexa for Psychosis

    Like all neuroleptics, Zyprexa also causes a strong nicotine craving as it blocks the (vital) dopamine which is promoted by nicotine consumption … thus it can happen to any smoker that he no longer has his cigarettes consumption under control and also non-smokers they will smoke (frequent observations of me). consequential damage is to be expected from smoking …

    Side effects: No 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

    After a few days I had self-alienation before taking the drug was unknown to me, feeling heavy in the body, weight gain (5kilo), strong thirst. Consequential damages: After slow settling severe depersonalisations which improved after months, a feeling of self-alienation and realization remained until today, severe exhaustion and a feeling of emptiness since the discontinuation of the drug has unfortunately remained. as well as a loss of inner security. No more sexual sensations since discontinuing the drug three years ago. to a heavy, constant head pressure. Ingestion and discontinuation have made me seriously ill. I have not had any symptoms that I am suffering from before. the reason for the attack was a life crisis that had depressive tendencies and was always accompanied by anxiety.

    Zyprexa for Anxiety disorders; Anorexia; Sleep disorders; Depression; Psychosis

    I think that the Zyprexa made me so nervous. The nervousness disappeared when taking Tavor, after Tavor was discontinued the nervousness came back. The bad side effects are 100% loss of libido, total self-alienation, often mild dizziness, a kind of electric shock (it really twitches through the goose body) and tingling in the hands The good side effect is weight gain which is also very desirable because of the stomach addiction.
