Common Questions and Answers about Olanzapine and mirtazapine

zyprexa

I told all this to my prescribing psychiatrist. She said she'd give me a script for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>olanzapine</span> (zyprexa, she called it). I told her I did not want any more medications. She told me this one is non-addictive, so I reluctantly said OK.
I am not bipolar, depressed or schizophrenic. I am weaning off Diazepam & zopiclone. Due to many health problems of late, & an unpleasant event occurring on top of all this, I have been rather anxious,because of all this. My question is: What & how will olanzapine help me with these circumstances occurring all at once? I am very reluctant to add yet another medication to those I'm already on.
But tried <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mirtazapine</span> again in 2010 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span></span> now <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span></span> it seems to be helping the depression with less problems than effexor like nausea and strange dreams. But now weight is going back down and I shop for more fruits and drink diet soda's. I know there are healthier things to drink, but it was on sale.... :) Cranberry juice is healthy too. Trying to buy low-fat and sugar free yoghurt in smaller cups and buying lean meats...
Based on my pharmacy tech knowledge, I came up with a new one called Stavzor, then loxapine, tamoxifen <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>olanzapine</span> (zyprexa) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span></span> risperdal and mirtazapine. These are available in the UK (according to the net...so I hope I am right.) The tamoxifen is mostly for the mania though. The mirtazapine is for the depression....which I think you should have one of each to stabalize. Also, you have to be careful in how you ask for different pills....
I have noticed lately i been constantly shaking and people have started to notice it in my hands mostly.

The two patients who had a poor response and their insulin resistance increased were both on psych meds that can cause high blood sugar (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>olanzapine</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span></span> Zopiclone). As if that wasn't enough, when taken together, Actos causes the levels of Zopiclone to go up. They're doctors. They should have known those drugs can increase insulin resistance! I find it hilarious how they talk about their screw up and then switch responsability back to the patient (who BTW was NOT obese) ......

I've tried caffeine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span></span> it makes no difference whatsoever. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span></span> I mean quite a bit of caffeine, like a few nodoz pills, or a couple of the "extra caffeine" Rockstar drinks with 250 mg caffeine each. This is a withdrawal symptom I've never heard of from anybody anywhere online regarding diphenhydramine. It's always the opposite - they can't sleep without it. I am thinking after taking it for so long, it's just completely messed up my cholinergic brain chemistry.
I had more energy, was constantly doing things, talking to people non stop. I was happy, smiling <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span></span> laughing. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span></span> now, I am in a depressive state again. I have zero energy, I want to sleep all day, I barely clean anything unless I have to, I don't want to interact with anyone, just want to be left alone completely. Everything that is going on right now, is my fault. It's my fault my daughters dad is an ******* and is barely around, my daughter even hates me.
<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>olanzapine</span> (Zyprexa),Quetiapine (Seroquel),Risperidone (Risperdal),Clozapine (Clozaril) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span></span> aripiprazole (Abilify), Though Seroquel, Abilify and Zyprexa from other studies I have seen, are more affective then Clozaril. Third Anti-Depressants, AD's for short. These are generally used 3rd if the MS and AP drugs don't work. There is hesitancy in the literature in using these drugs because they can be activating (causes mania and worsened anxiety).
