Common Questions and Answers about Zyprexa and xanax interaction

zyprexa

I have hit a rough patch as of late and have tried numerous BP medications (Depakote, Lithium, Seroquel, Zyprexa, etc, etc) and have had adverse reactions to all of them. And by rough, I mean I have been off of work for three weeks. This is my last resort; my shrink and I are going to have to medicate the h-ll out of me to get back to work.
of Paxil 10mg and Xanax .5mg but i try to only take the xanax at night so I can hopefully fall asleep and STAY asleep past 3hrs. The paxil seems to be starting to work because i feel kind of "numb" but it beats feeling devastatingly sad and crying all the time I hope someone here will be able to help us.
I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.
My sister was diagnosed with mood disorder a few weeks ago and was recommended to take Zyprexa (2 pills/day) for 6 weeks to treat it. She took the medicine for 2 weeks and left it without the doctor's recommendation as she used to feel too exhausted and she thought that her emotions were under her control now. After a week of leaving the medicine, she slowly became hyper and even sucidal.

Life has been one hell of a roller coaster, but in this time I have managed to graduate college and an MBA, secure and maintain a well-paying and fulfilling business career and marry the love of my life (and hang on to her thus far). I have seen 3 different family doctors, 2 different psychiatrists and 1 endocrinologist...
5mgs of Klonopin. I have Xanax XR as a PRN and had too take that, along with 5 melatonin and 3 Benadrtyl to sleep last night; ridiculous...I still have a bunch of Xanax XR floating around in my system and it's not putting a dent into the mania. Over the past two weeks, my psychiatrist and I have tried Lithium (became very agitated) and Seroquel (made the cycling far worse). We thought about Zyprexa, but it works in the same manner as Seroquel.
) I think at the time the Zyprexa really screwed up my digestion worse then anything I have ever taken... And maybe it was true, and maybe this was the cause??... But regardless, now I am obsessed about avoiding everything I really like to eat!!! Bananas, Pizza, etc... (note these things are actually good sources of tryptophan i believe!)... I have began eating them again, but still always wondering... I wish I never wouldve gone to him or atleast got that diagnosis.
I am forcing the water as much as I can I am on Prozac and Xanax however I think I must need something else and was hoping someone would suggest something to help me. I am afraid I will not have a friend or family member left by my side by the time I complete treatment. I had a serious infection last week (boil) which is still draining so I wonder if that could be adding to my distress. Distressed is exactly what I feel.
So glad you are choosing to join us. This is the place to be if you want off Tramadol. Lots of love, information and empathy here!
I never took meds until this last 1 I am 48 and have been on lamictal, wellbutrin,lithium,zyprexa, and klonipin. I still have a hard time in the mornings but I have kept my job as a fire fighter. I am worried that I may have been missdiagnosed. 1 shrink said I was bi polar and another says I have major depression.
I am on 225 mg since Aug 2005 and have gained at least 20 lbs and gone up 2 sizes, I am sick about this and am tapering down as we speak!!
