Olanzapine blood test

Common Questions and Answers about Olanzapine blood test


Avatar m tn Hello, I have been diagnosed and treated for psychotic depression, OCD, anxiety for last few years. I was on olanzapine 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).
Avatar f tn I forgot to mention that I also got tested for my blood sugar. High blood 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.
535089 tn?1400677119 It seems that many members are often having "bad" drug screens so again, here is some information on why your Test may be wrong. Medications & Substances Causing False Positives According to a report by the Los Angeles Times New Service, a study of 161 prescription and over the counter medications showed that 65 of them produced false positive results in the most widely administered urine test.
Avatar m tn Do you have to have a stress test to determine if your blood pressure is shooting up/running high during STRENUOUS exercise?
Avatar f tn 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 blood test 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.
Avatar m tn 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 blood test 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.
Avatar m tn Prior to that I had had periodical depression as well mood swings since the age 12 and through out the years I was prescribed all sorts of anti-depressant medication as well as ECT and vagus nerve implant, none of which made any substantial difference to my mood disorders . The last medication I tried was Olanzapine which after the first two months or so made things a lot worse and my depression became permanent even after I stopped taking Olanzapine.
Avatar f tn I feel he has become worse since stopping these meds and a recent blood test 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.
603946 tn?1333945439 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 blood test 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!
11072290 tn?1415066835 Nerve conduction tests would indicate if there is any impingement on the nerves. A blood test 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.
468452 tn?1225968488 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 blood test, d-dimer blood test 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.
Avatar f tn My son is 15 and just started taking Zyprexa Olanzapine 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.
Avatar n tn 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.

Each time they rans the troponin blood test, d-dimer blood test 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.

2216810 tn?1420860476 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 blood test 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...
574118 tn?1305138884 incidentally, is there a blood test to check the ammount of secretion of melatonin by the pirenial gland.
468452 tn?1225968488 Yet then I have to say to myself that I have since had an echo, troponin blood test 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.
26471 tn?1211940121 One was on Olanzapine ...which is famous for causing high blood 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).
Avatar n tn 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. Test after test ... 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.
