Zyprexa and ativan

Common Questions and Answers about Zyprexa and ativan


Avatar f tn So they hooked me up to an IV, two bags of fluids and 1 ml of ativan. Half hour later, nothing. So 1 more dose ativan and sometime within the next half hour I was a zombie. Normally ativan thru an IV wont jack me up that way. It took 3 of them to wake me, so I was wondering if anyone had heard of zyprexa and if maybe the two drugs interacted to induce that little coma....

Avatar n tn I'm worried about the weight gain with Zyprexa, is there something else that could be used with the Prozac instead? Also until now I've also been taking 1 mg. Ativan in the morning and 1 mg Ativan before bed. Is it safe to use Ativan with the Zyprexa?
Avatar n tn a Priest, Nami, and family friends. Since I have been off the Zyprexa for 2 months, I feel like I'm out of a coma. I am embracing the compliments from people and engaging in conversations with new people, (for the first time in 14 years). I feel hopeful. My lesson from my experience is to never let one Male doctor dominate my life, nor close myself off to others who were always concerned. A doctor should always be open and flexible, with no unethical attachment.
Avatar m tn Ativan 2x a day for 6 months then try and wean off them and see how it goes. The outpatient doctor however didn't agree and wanted her on 30 to 40 m.g.'s zyprexa and that is where we were headed ,listening to her prescription. She also wanted her to go off Ativan cold turkey - no weaning.My daughter didn't respond well to that and everytime she tries to go down on the dosage now .5m.g. a day (very small amount) she gets closer to catatonic.
3122467 tn?1342142436 I have confronted the pshychiatrist 2 and both times he left me with it and first he gave me a drug that is supposed to help with askasthia, cogentin. Still didn't work. Talked to him again and now he gave me ativan instead of just changing zyprexa. Has anyone expreienced askasthia and continued to take the medicne and have it go away?

640716 tn?1223155806 The last check was 7 mg of ativan, 2 Paxil, 3 Zyprexa's. The next day it was 5 paxil's 1 Zyprexa, and 6 ativan. She is an older woman and she is in complete denial. She's also had a history of alcoholism. (As do I, I've been sober over 4 years now). What, if anything, can I do to help her? I know an addict must want to stop, I just don't know how to behave even.
Avatar f tn he says it will help my anxieyu anf deprssion and to get offf ativan im on 2 to 2 1/2 mg ativan now...im soafraid of over dose on the two are they commonly used together?
Avatar f tn Greetings all, this is my first post with the community. I am currently posting in the addictions section as I suffer other problems, and am currently going through withdrawal from some pain medications. My psychiatrist recently upped my Ativan from 2x daily to up to 4x daily, they are 1mg tab's. It doesn't work at all. I am still having severe anxiety with my depression, and even had a panic attack today.
Avatar f tn 30p. Ativan needs to be taken at regular intervals, so you should figure out what time you normally get up and what time you normally go to bed. Figure out the average hours you're awake and divide that by 4. That will give you the "approximate" times to take your pills. I think if you got yourself on a regular dosing schedule, you would not get the "crawlies.
Avatar n tn Can someone tell me how to tapper this medication safely. I also take Zyprexa 2.5 mg, Celexa 20 MG and beta blocker and diuretic for blood pressure. I also quit alcohol (I was occasional drinker) about 5 weeks ago, cause I started to get panic attacks the next day after drinking. I didn't have any serious withdrawal. but i was prescribed lorazepam for panic attacks. The medication is making me dizzy during the day, but it could be blood pressure med also.
Avatar n tn My question is should I take my Cymbalta and also half dosage of my Zyprexa and slowly come of it? I have read all the horror stories of Zyprexa withdrawal. I also take Ativan 1mg and Benazepril. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Avatar n tn He is on his second antidepresent called Elavil and now they are wanting to add Zyprexa to be taken with the Elavil. Lots of other sides but these seem to be the worse at the moment. Going into his 5th month of treatment. Pretty much a struggle the entire time. Today first day back to work in weeks. Viral counts almost undetectable, however the ALT and AST remain above the 150's. Much more to say but for now just needing feedback on this new drug they want to try.
Avatar m tn Then, about 2 ½ years ago I had a near-psychotic meltdown, mostly about the devil and evil spirits, and was diagnosed with OCD and prescribed Anafranil and Zyprexa, which helped with the irrational thinking and obsessive thoughts a little. Between now and then, I have been diagnosed with OCD, Social anxiety disorder, GAD, major depressive disorder, ADHD, and most recently, aspergers/high functioning autism.
Avatar f tn Anyhow, onto my question... In addition to depression, I struggle with anxiety and take 1 mg Ativan as needed, up to 3x/day. The Ativan helps with the anxiety but I've noticed if I have to take it for a few days in a row it really seems to affect my mood, in that I often feel even more depressed than I did before taking it.

Avatar n tn Do anyone know if Ativan and Zyprexa is a dangerous drup mix, when given together?
Avatar n tn ativan and klonopin are both benzodiazepines. I almost died from a seizure brought on by abrupt discontinuence of ativan. Save your son by taking him to another doctor right away. A first year med student would know you can't abruptly stop benzos. Drinking sure as hell is not the answer. Good luck.
Avatar n tn I've been taking 300 mg. Carbolit (Lithium Carbonate) for 4-5 years after being diagnosed with a "sub-clinical" bipolar condition. I also take 20 mg. Fluoxac and 0.5 mg. Ativan. All daily and all quite successfully. Is there another medication I can substitute for Carbolit to eliminate tremors?
Avatar n tn Just to touch on what was happening a little more, I felt like these things around me were touching me and trying to pull me and I kept dropping stuff and I had what felt like uncontrolable arm and leg movements all day and they got worse at night.
Avatar n tn however i drank a bit too much coffee and i am having my ocd moment regarding hiv and i want a question answered..
Avatar m tn Lamictal - (from same Internist for Bipolar) Headache and nausea, dizziness Zyprexa - (from same Internist for Bipolar, no clue why he gave me this) Only taken once, incredibly frightening experience, disorientation, blurred vision, hallucinations, loss of motor functions Adderall XR - Eliminated anxiety by helping me focus, however anxiety increased as medication wore off which I could not tolerate. Also horrible insomnia and complete loss of appetite.
Avatar n tn I have been in and out of Klonopin scripts for anxiety due to a seperation, and also ativan. I've dabbled in Hydros also. I often mixed these drugs with alcohol and I'm an alcoholic. EVERY doctor thinks I've still got anxiety and still precribes these evil drugs. Once the scrip is over, after 3 days,I feel like killing myself. I'm a professional, and I can't function without these stupid benzos. Once I even take a .5 of Klonopin, all is good again.
Avatar f tn I used Buspar 10 years ago and got off ativan and my anxiety went away. I was on Zyprexa at the beginning and yes it caused a big weight gain. I have been on Ativan for a year and a half. My history is long and I think I posted it a couple of times on this site and on the fibromyalgia site. Been through a lot, am tapering slowly off the Ativan but am exchanging to Valium to make the process slower.
Avatar m tn i have been very lethargic lately,i take zyprexa 5mg,ativan 0.5mg,paxil 10 mg and procyclidine 2.
