Zyprexa benadryl

Common Questions and Answers about Zyprexa benadryl


Avatar f tn Dizziness, btw IS a common side effect of the Zyprexa...you had asked about that previously. As for stopping the Zyprexa, check with your doctor of course, but just stopping should not be a problem at all after only a few days. You shouldn't have any adverse effects stopping it abruptly at this point. Zyprexa takes at least 3-4 weeks to really start doing its thing. Let us know how you're feeling, and again....give your doc a ring....it doesn't hurt to be cautious. Take Care.
Avatar f tn She is good about waking me up if she gets too down, but then guess what, I am dying the next day because I have been up with her all night. She has used Ambien, benadryl, tylenol PM. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and have tried a number of medications at different times, usually a combination of 2 or 3 of the following: lithium, prozac, lexapro, seroquel, abilify, risperdal, klonopin, vistaril, zyprexa, ambien, rozerem, & depakote. Zyprexa, Benadryl, Depakote, and Seroquel have caused me to twitch and feel like my skin is crawling an hour (or a few) after I take them.
Avatar f tn He is close to giving up on his life.No manic symptoms nor happiness for almost 2 yrs. He was just taken off zyprexa and zoloft and was prescribed geodan and effexor along with the valium, buspar an ritalin he's also/already been taking. These meds together make little sense to me, seem to contradict each other, God knows the interaction and side effects to worry about. He is all by himself across the country from home, no consistant mental health follow up.
Avatar m tn Is there anything OTC that I can take to help me sleep? Would Zyprexa help at all? I had been taking 20 per day for about 10 years. Over the past 2-3 weeks, I have been tapering them back, down to about 10 per day. I have taken 0 over the past four days. I haven't slept in several days. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
968464 tn?1247757430 Try taking 2 Benadryl. Also Valerian root and Melatonin help a little. No sleep can be one of the turfiest parts of detox. It can take some time but it will eventually come.
Avatar f tn safer meds would be better if u need sumpin over a week or so...over the counter u can get benadryl, valerian root, melatonin...and safer rx drugs that have a side effect of sleepiness are phenergan and some ADs that cause sleepiness/no alcohol with any rx sleep or anxiety medication...lunesta or ambien are both less habit forming than valium but valium is a good choice tho out of the benzo family with xanax, klonopin and ativan being much stronger...
Avatar n tn I am feeling better every day and the last thing i want to do is go through 4 days of feeling like c r a p. I have tried Lunesta, melatonin and benadryl with no luck. However my sleep is non-existant and so badly needed. Should i try the seroquel for a night? I have read pros and cons about it.
Avatar n tn urologist about 6 months ago, PVR and sono's show some residual still so he is on Septra-SS x1 QD, and Pyridium 100mg BID. He takes nasonex Q HS, and often needs Benadryl for allergies & hives. He has very bad eye sight in one eye, required patch for a summer when he was 5. We attempted to take him to the ER for behavior eval twice last wk. only to get sent home, they didn't feel he was a big enough threat to anyone yet.

447130 tn?1225474466 Oh-yes I work out 5 days a week, no sugar in my diet, and I've always lived a healthy lifestyle so I'm confused about sleep. I'm about to take 10 benadryl to see if that works.
1134609 tn?1269275800 400.00 per month script; I can't afford it. Plus, it's an AP and I have tried Zyprexa, Seroquel, and Risperdone (sp?) and they drove me nuts. Geodone: Same situation as Abilify. Too expensive and I am tired of being gutted by the APs. I guess I am just venting, but I don't know what to do. We have the same friggin discssion about these meds every time I see her. I am starting to feel like a difficult patient, but I feel like I have to put my foot down..
603015 tn?1329866573 Actually Zyprexa is the antipsychotic the most likely to cause weight gain. I gained 35 pounds on it. All antipsychotics have that potential but I found it managable with most of the atypicals. Zyprexa is a very effective mood stabilizer but that is a drawback of it. I did not have much of a problem with Seroquel in that regard.
1134609 tn?1269275800 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. Anything that has any kind of direct or indirect effect on Serotonin or Dopamine does this too me. Depakote is out of the equation because of it's interaction with Lamictal. Before I was diagnosed with BP Disorder, I was on Celexa and Neurontin consistently, and we tried Buspar and Klonopin..
Avatar n tn my husband was recently diagnosed BP he was put on lamictal, desyrel, zyprexa, inderal.he was put in a hospital after he attempted suicide, they released him after putting him on these meds for only four days, they gave him no aftercare support.
Avatar f tn If there's no possible way to solve the ability-initiated akathisia, I could try Zyprexa or Seroquel which supposedly have a lower incidence of akathisia. But with Abilify the results are so amazing. I don't want to give it up if there is a standard treatment for the akathisia. Anneinside. Do you take 30mg twice a day or 60mg at once? How long did it take for Propranalol to take effect?
Avatar m tn Once that starts and is not addressed as happenned to me I needed an injection of Benadryl. One thing that's a good idea if your psychiatrist agrees (for anyone) is to bring along chewable Benadryl in case there is a problem with any akathesia or dystonia from antipsychotics so if there isn't water to take medications with it can be stopped.
Avatar n tn Can't sleep at night unless I take Benadryl. Is it anxiety, or something else? I am currently on Lexapro 10 mg a day and Wellbutrin SR 200 mg a day (both for depression), which seem to have helped the problem a little. I've been on Wellbutrin SR 100 mg about a month, and the Lexapro 10 mg about 2 weeks. I don't think I'm crazy, but I have had a very horrible life (a lot of bad things have happened) and a history of depression.
Avatar n tn The protocol can vary based on your headache type, but generally consists of DHE, magnesium, depakote, kytril, benadryl given daily. Sometimes medications such as solumedrol and zyprexa or seroquel are also added. Unfortunately if your are taking the ibprofen or other pain medication twice per week they can cause rebound headaches, that cannot be cured by cocktails-only by stopping the medications. Some patients need 3-5 days of infusions allow them to get off their pain medication. Dr.
Avatar m tn I am also on Trazadone for sleep, not intended for that, but seeing as I have taken it for years it really is not effective so I also take Restoril which is just a prescription anti-histamine similar to Benadryl, that you can buy over the counter. Working on your sleep hygiene is much preferable to all these aids, though, just as Paxiled said. Some people take Melatonin, that might help.
Avatar n tn I also read about others taking Benadryl to help with the sympthoms, is this true cause this sister is ready to take some. Thanks for and support offered. Have a Blessed Holiday Season Stay in Good Mental Health!!!!

Avatar n tn Klonopin works great, for both the physical and mental of anxiety, especially if you have it 24/7 "gad" Drs like to think Antidepressants are the key to anxiety, but thats just not true all the time.
173975 tn?1216261375 taking 450 mg daily for a week and tapering quickly thereafter to 15 mg daily at the end of the first month. Talk about psychotic. Had to take zyprexa, a heavy duty anti-psychotic for a week or two to come back down to earth. I am also very sensitive to riba; a dose of three is not something I can handle at all, so I take one pill six times a day, and am doing better that way.
Avatar n tn bannas help with restless leg (potasium) some people suggest 5htp for depression 1 a day weeks after 1st. 5htp also is good at night for sleep 4 caps. some people also say benadryl is good for sleep. you can start the receipe right away, the pils deplete our body of most of its nutrients, the shits and runs make this a lot worse that is why the imodium is si important, loss of nutrients and elctrolites make the with drawls a lot worse then they have to be.
Avatar n tn enk! Didn't work.Then Zyprexa...enk! Nope. One other...I think Abilify or something...also ENK! Until the Doc finally broke bread and hooked me up with the "Klonopin"...WHAM! That was the ticket. Now being a heroin addict I had an almost "Hyper-tolerance" to any "narcotic" so I had to take about 4 or 5 2mg "pins" a day. Not having an outside Doctor(no insurance)...
Avatar n tn I try to calm myself, talk to myself, will swallow a benadryl to make myself sleepy, all the while freaked out over it being dark outside. I'm not "scared of the dark" by any means, this is more of a claustrophobia thing, I think. Once it is no longer dark, I'm much better. I grieve for a month knowing the time change will bring the darkness sooner...help, I can't live like this anymore, and my doc just poo poos me off, and I can't switch cause i have no med insurance.
Avatar n tn I've developed some breakouts all over my body with water inside and they itch. At first I thought it was an allergy, so I took Benadryl and some other anti-allergetics. It did not help. Then I've decided to try 50mg of Topomax at night, and right away the itch was gone. But I think its one of the side effects. I don't have insurance or medical, so if anyone there had the same problem or could ask their doctor for me, it would help me a lot. Thank You.
