Olanzapine blood test

Common Questions and Answers about Olanzapine blood test


Hello, I have been diagnosed and treated for psychotic depression, OCD, anxiety for last few years. I was on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>olanzapine</span> for 1 year (5mg), and it worked like making me sleepy really quickly and knocked me out in within 10 mins. Then I was on and off basis as I was not so glad to taking medications because all next I was sleepy. Recently my condition has worsened and I am taking 2.5 mg as said by doctor (take when required and your condition etc).
I forgot to mention that I also got tested for my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> sugar. High <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> sugar can cause aches and pains especially in the feet, ankles, and legs from what I understand of it. It is a good thing to get it checked if you haven't already, because antipsychotics can raise blood sugar as a side effect of them anyways. If nothing else it would be a good idea to get it ruled out, my results came back fine though.
Do you have to have a stress <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> to determine if your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> pressure is shooting up/running high during STRENUOUS exercise?
If that doctor doesn't consider them both then keep going to new doctors until you find one that does, because these disorders are very very serious, and there are also many treatments out there that make a lot of difference to them. You'll probably need a couple <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> to check for physical causes, an EEG and maybe a CT scan to check if your brain waves and structure is normal, and you'll probably have to endure rather annoying interviews.
I passed the breath test but failed the physical due to weak ankles, inner ear problems, and sinus problems; even in perfect physical condition I doubt I could pass those tests. I took a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> that showed I had 0.03 mg/L of oxycodone, 0.17 mg/L of symbax in my system. Are those considered high levels - I might add that day I did take my oxycondone as prescribed because of an abcessed tooth.
I feel he has become worse since stopping these meds and a recent <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> showed he has very low vitd and high vitc...he suffers sever stomach cramps vomiting and diareah every day along with general muscle aches and pains. He has been prescribed vit d but since taking it he has become more depressed and emotional.
If this was my dog, I'd definitely go have a fecal run for Parvo just to make sure......While there, ask them for a copy of his <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> results....These are yours and it's important to have them.....You can evaluate his numbers yourself if you had a copy..... What treatments are in place for your dog's Kidney disease? Any medications, special food or supplements? Next, I would question what on earth she was thinking to vaccinate a dog w/Kidney Disease? Put her on the spot!
Nerve conduction tests would indicate if there is any impingement on the nerves. A <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> to check your Vitamin B12, Vitamin D, levels and also glucose levels would be useful. Sometimes pins and needles can be felt because of those vitamin deficiencies. Pins and needles can also be due to nerve damage due to high sugar levels. The HbA1C test would show your blood sugar levels over a period of 3 months. Make an appointment to see your dentist with regard to your painful teeth.
My son is 15 and just started taking Zyprexa <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>olanzapine</span> tablets yesterday. He is taking 5mg this week and the next 2 weeks he goes up to 10mg. The side effects I am reading on this drug sound very scary. His psychiatrist wants to meet with him more before giving him a diagnosis, but when he does I am pretty sure it will be schizophrenia. I just want to know if Zyprexa has helped anyone or what I can expect from this drug.
Over the next two weeks I had two ambulances to the local A and E and also begged my husband to drive me into the A and E a further to two times. Each time they rans the troponin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span>, d-dimer <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> and performed an ECG and chest X-Ray. All of them were normal. I did eventually manage to get seen by MIMS who are Mother and Infant Mental Health Services, they specialise in mothers who crack up after giving birth.
Sue..... The lowest limit of that test is 615IU's. The < means "less than"......So, all this test says is that you are "less than" 615IU/ml. If your prior test was only 39, then y0u should have had a more sensitive test. I am surprised that they would use this test for you. But it's still good. Since Hcv is most often measured in the Millions of copies, then this is still a good sign. The currently best tests I've seen measure all the way down to 5.

Over the next two weeks I had two ambulances to the local A and E and also begged my husband to drive me into the A and E a further to two times. Each time they rans the troponin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span>, d-dimer <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> and performed an ECG and chest X-Ray. All of them were normal. I think that I managed to stay out of hospital for about another week and my husband took me to see a private cardiologist who ordered a 48hr ecg monitor, Echo and another ECG.
this is so sad, im sorry you are going through this, i dont really understand it, as i quit heroin ct the day i found out i was pregnant, that scary thing is your baby will show traces, i didnt touch ANYTHING sept for a shot in my thigh of Demerol 4 weeks b4 i gave birth and it showed positive in babys screaming and because i was closely monitored through the pregnancy due to epival,<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>olanzapine</span> causing my baby to have a 80% chance of spinibifita (sp) they knew it was the doctors that gave my the
The causes of mental illnesses are all theories, because due to tyhe subjective nature of the assessment, it is difficult to study psychiatric disorders. It's not like your doctor can order a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> and tell you you have X, Y, or Z. Try to think a little more positively, you took that first step and sought help, that's great. You are being so resistant to any suggestion, that's not the best way to handle this. Start turning your thinking around...
Yet then I have to say to myself that I have since had an echo, troponin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> and a chest x-ray and they have all come back normal. Surely nothing can have been missed, but honest to god I know that this is my heart. It’s like two people in my head trying to push a boulder yet they are both pushing on opposite sides rather than the same side and the boulder just isn’t moving.
incidentally, is there a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> to check the ammount of secretion of melatonin by the pirenial gland.
One was on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>olanzapine</span> ...which is famous for causing high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> sugar and the other one was on Zopiclone. And to top it off, when taken together, Actos causes the levels of Zopiclone to go up. They used non-responders who were probably interferon resistant, they didn't use the best insulin sensitizer and they allowed patients to take meds that could increase their blood sugar (therefore increasing the insulin resistance).
It's so confusing and understandably scary when things are happening to you that you or your doctors can not explain. I myself am trying to figure out what is going on with me right now. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> after <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> ... it is very frustrating. What life change happened to you (if I may ask). If it's too personal I understand. God bless and hope you get back to enjoying your life.
Holy, I think you should take another <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> for H. Pylori. I just got a positive <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> three days ago, after being negative 6 months ago. tests are not always accurate, and there are false positives and false negatives. So it's best to do it again, just to make sure. Fecalbodyodor, it is interesting that those people associate their PATM with the treatment of H. pylori. In my case my PATM condition is certainly not caused by treating GERD because I just got a positive test.
