Common Questions and Answers about Zyprexa for social anxiety

zyprexa

Avatar f tn The fear of rejection is to much. I'm not sure if the Zyprexa is doing anything for me. I feel such confidence and trust in my Dr, I'm scared if I tell him all I feel, he'll turn me away, like my psychologist did, when during a bad manic episode he ignored my calls for help, got the receptionist to do it too. I mean I was suicidal, had sliced up my arms severely and nearly overdosed. The next time I had a appointment he said it was our last and that was that.
Avatar n tn i have been on zyprexa for about 6 years, and the other night i had to go without. i was up until 5am, worrying and stressing and felt like an out-of-control zombie the next day. in the last year i have recognized much more paranoia in my day-to-day thinking. i wonder if zyprexa loses its effectiveness, and after reading this forum, i am convinced to search for a new-and-improved anti-psychotic.
Avatar n tn I have Body Dysmorphic Disorder and Social Anxiety. Because Body Dysmorphic Disorder is not well known, I have not been able to recieve any help for my disorder. Did you ever hear of this disorder? Do you know of anyone who was treated for it? I will take any help or information I can get. I have been on Luvox, Zoloft, Prozac, Celexa and Zyprexa. Neither of these medications helped me, they actually made me worse.

739988 tn?1386676569 I mean like I take a med for depression, a med for mania, is there one for anxiety? Thank you for your help.
Avatar n tn Yes, the wellbutrin can help your anxiety. The way to deal with your social anxiety is to do it more naturally. That is, don't go to the wildest, most frightening. You can change by doing something daring once or twice. Instead you should go where you know you should go, and when, and keep on getting little success experiences. Don't give in to your tendency to hide.
Avatar n tn The use of opiates / opioids for anxiety and depression has been suggested by many doctors and psychiatrists for decades. As a matter of fact, my mother's psychiatrist offered her Lortab(hydrocodone/APAP) for her anxiety, but she didn't want them because they upset her stomach. Ask your doctor and / or psychiatrist if they can subscribe some kind of opiate. It can't hurt to ask because SOME psychiatrists have already begun subscribing narcotic pain meds for anxiety.
Avatar f tn i'm going to try to do your survey but different people have different anxieties and what works with some don't for others.i have social and health anxiety problems. 1 zyprexa,i don't know the catagory.2 it took probally about 3 or 4 days for me to acually feel a little change.3 i'm not sure if it ever really did fully work i only took it for about 3 months,and sometimes would miss taking it 2 or 3 times a week.
Avatar n tn It has worked so well for for 6 years along with a therapist.. I would reccomend you using the antidepressanet to help get you past this time.also give them time for them to work. while you are housebound try doing some light exercise to get your seritonin levels up.Just turn on some music and dance to it for a few minutes. I will keep you prayers and keep posting to let me know how you are.
Avatar f tn So, three weeks ago I did and they put me on Lexapro 10mg for anxiety and Protonix 40mg for stomach problems that go with my anxiety. So, now I feel better but I wonder if I could avoid all this by stopping the birth control pill. What other options are there for a 20 that doesn't want to have kids for at least 5-8 years?
480448 tn?1426952138 Therefore, I am going to share with you all what *I* know about these phenomena, and hopefully reassure some of you that this is par for the anxiety course...it while irritating, maybe even maddening...it is totally harmless. Derealization and depersonalization are two terms that are sometimes used interchangably. Truth is, they DO vary a little bit in their presentation....but overall, they also are VERY similar.
606584 tn?1224853036 I think the combination of wellbutrin (for depression), clonazepam (anxiety) and talk therapy with a great psychologist has helped the most. The other huge thing that I know help are supplements, especially Omega 3...there are now lots "scientific" studies that support the use of Omega 3's (fish oil) for mood disorders. Omega 3's also help with our overall health as well.
Avatar n tn My son is in an ecdd program through preschool and his teachers are recommending he stay in the program for another year because they say he is socially imature for his age he has a seperation anxiety problem and has just been diagnosed with adhd/anxiety disorder by his psychologists and they want to start him on the medication ritilan and possibly a med for his anxiety.
Avatar n tn I would go to see another psych but id like to descuss a few things here first. Here are a few problems ive had for a while. I do have some social anxiety and often drift off into a daydream, even in the middle of talking. My thoughts sometimes race into a negative pattern or concentrate on something other than what i was talking about/listening to.
Avatar m tn Hi (sorry in advance for the long post), I am a twenty year old male in Las Vegas and have been struggling with mental health problems for my whole life, but only realizing my thoughts were abnormal for the past 2 ½ years. I was first diagnosed as a child with anxiety but we thought nothing of it.
Avatar m tn Yeah i totally agree with Ryan, i took Paxil 20mg for agraphobia, social anxiety and panic disorder for 14years and from went from being afraid of my shadow to an outgoing, enjoying life kinda woman.
Avatar n tn I have had anxiety problems and panic attacks for about 2 years now and finally got some zanax which i take once a day and it has worked wonders for me i feel like i can better control my life. I have panic attacks when i am in front of a lot of people like giving a presentation for college.

Avatar n tn am I causing long term damage to my body by taking this everyday? Suffer from severe social anxiety, I still suffer from the social anxiety when taking the medicine, except the blushing isn't as severe.
Avatar n tn I've suffered from social anxiety for 22 years now. I never thought anything of it, nor did I even know of such a disorder until I read an article about social phobias on the internet. Up until recently I was still doing ok, I was able to force myself into social events and conversations, but now I am even unable to talk to my own parents. It is to the point where talking to a psychiatrist would be out of the question.
Avatar m tn I have seen the most well known doctors in the world and they still cant pin point my condition. They say I suffer from social anxiety but I disagree. My family has always been health concious and pro-drugs(legal prescription drugs). They are very supportive of me. I feel as if the side affects of the drugs are outweighing the benefits. I just started coming off 5mg of zyprexa because I am scared that these drugs are harming my body. I always think about longevity of life.
Avatar n tn Yes I used to have some kind of social anxiety and self consiousnes but it's not the breakup,it's the stress the relationship caused to me (crazy ex..) and I tried to get over it but I guess it had to do more with a nervous problem than something to be treated with antipsychotics cause these pills have some weird side effects. Yes I'll get a second opinion,but till then do you know how long will it take to get addicted on risperdal? cause I don't want to.
Avatar m tn I was on the drug Risperidone(Risperdal) for two months and also on Zuclopentixol (Clopixol) injections. And I developed social anxiety, poor attention and zero social skills. After getting off the clinic, I self medicated to Risperidone(Risperdal), Clonazepam (Rivotril) and Mirtazapine (Remeron) at recommended dosage (And Zuclopentixol (Clopixol) injection) and feel good, and developed social skills, and social anxiety is less.
Avatar n tn Klonipin is for anxiety, lamictal is a mood stabilizer, cymbalta is an antidepressant, so she is probably pretty sedated. My question is : has she ever been to a psychiatrist?
Avatar f tn 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. I've been on Klonopin before and all that did was make me fall asleep (even on a very low dose), and at least with Ativan I feel as though I can function without feeling so tired.
Avatar m tn None of these medicines, on any dose took away my panic or anxiety. I recently had a 24 hour urine collection to test for tumors on my adrenal glands, as well as my dopamine level, etc. But it came back normal. I started taking Effexor, after doing some serious research of my own. After 3 days on the low dose, I felt healed. I felt amazing and incredible. I drove across the state, and actually went on vacation. I came down with bronchitis and needed an antibiotic according to my doctor.

Avatar n tn I read klonopin works best for reducing anxiety with social anxiety disorder. What effects did klonopin have on you when you first started it? Did it reduce anxiety? Any side effects? I read your post, what is mask face? Also is there any difference between generic clonazepam and klonopin that you know? I'm glad I didn't have the same side effects as you when I started taking my SSRI. Hope it's not too bad. Could you reply to this post or email me? I would really appreciate it.
Avatar f tn I'm not sure if the Zyprexa is doing anything for me. I feel such confidence and trust in my Dr, I'm scared if I tell him all I feel, he'll turn me away, like my psychologist did. I find it hard to trust people and I couldn't handle it if it happened again. So I only talk to my GP now. Also I fear doing things because the thought of doing evokes such fear that I seem to avoid pretty much everything. Do I need a mood stabilizer? or new meds?
