Zyprexa heart

Common Questions and Answers about Zyprexa heart


Avatar f tn i took zyprexa untill i had wieght gain to the point that it effected my heart it also has the side effect of almost getting rid of your emotions i dont recomend its safty
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 There they gave me 2 pills of something called zyprexa and an hour later, i was still pacing. 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 My doc stopped that and started me on zoloft and I had the same problem. I was having racing thoughts and anxiety and my heart would race. My doc then put me on Zyprexa I was on it for a wek and a half and I was slurring my speech and could not finish a single thought and kept having muscle twitches.
Avatar n tn but I think that anyone who takes any anti-psychotic medication and knows he/she needs (down in your heart) then stay on it... Zyprexa is to me as Coumadin is to my friend Mohammad who requires it for his heart. And he told me that himself. I agree 100%. I won't waste anymore time with "checking to see if I still need it." It wastes time I don't have. When I'm on Zyprexa, I'm sharp, and insightful, patient, tolerant, happy and calm.
Avatar m tn Can anyone give me some info. on zyprexa? Has anyone been given this to help stabalize their mood, during withdrawal? If so, please share with me if you benefited from this, and is this addictive as well?
Avatar m tn On July 26 I gave birth to a baby who died 5 days later due to a catheter piercing his heart. About 2-3 weeks later I started taking zyprexa. After speaking to a lactation consultant who said I should be dried up by now I found out that lactation is a side effect of the med. Additionally I have had a light to almost nothing period. My question is if I am lactating due to the meds and I want to prepare to have a baby eventually will the lacation imbalance prevent that?
874521 tn?1424120397 most of you are familiar with my sons 'crash' in June... he was put on 20mg of zyprexa than maintained on 10mg....he was on this for a total of 31 days. It did bring him down off a severe state of anxiety and paranoia however left him in a VERY DARK depression. 4 days ago he was switched over to 200mg of seroquel(building up to 400mg) yesterday exactly 3 days after the change he woke up that morning and said 'it was as if the sun finally came out-after a month of darkness'....
Avatar f tn My son, 21, has been on Zyprexa for 6 months after presenting with a psychotic episode. His psychiatrist recommended a switch from Zyprexa to Zeldox fearing the deveopment of metabolic syndrome. He has now moved and is looking for a new psychiatrist which will take some time before the first appointment. What dosage of Zeldox would be equivalent to 10 mg daily of Zyprexa? What side effects can be expected during the switch from Zyprexa to Zeldox?
Avatar n tn My painful question is that I have been off Zyprexa for 6 weeks, 2.5mg. I I wake up trembling, heart racing, and depression, unable to sleep at all. What is happening? Also a new Doctor suggested Geodone right away, however he has not heard my damaging history with my doctor. Also, my doctor never kept accurate medical records in all 13 1/2 years, and was already leagally repremanded for not having medical records in 1994 from another patient.
616450 tn?1228437227 I've been taking Zyprexa at bedtime for the past few nights, per Endo #3, and I feel a lot better, folks. As a matter of fact, I felt better almost immediately after taking the first dose. It seems to act quick, like Xanax, but stays in the bloodstream longer or something. Dr. Pretorius was concerned that I was getting a little too used to Xanax, so he wants me to try to gradually come off of that and he'll increase the Zyprexa dosage.
1623698 tn?1299164834 How long does it take and how do I reduce the amount? I've been changed from Zyprexa to Seroquel because my depression came back. Within days I was extremely dizzy and nauseous and I concluded that it was withdrawal from Zyprexa so the Psychiatrist said to go back on it. Two months later, when I was feeling better, we tried it again but the same thing happened. By this time I was being told that I had an inner ear problem or it was caused by the new med.
Avatar f tn I was placed in a mental institution for a week and the only treatment that i have recibved in the last 18mths has been to get a presciption form a doctor for my medication for zyprexa i was put on 10mg daily dose. I want to now get off this medication as i do not have any symptoms of schizophrenia or paraniod thoughts, i also am not longer depressed or anxious and have been like this for quite some months now, what can i do to now come off my medication and be told that i am fine?
Avatar m tn I have wanted my son off zyprexa for awhile. Everytime he comes off an amount by the 3rd day he gets sucidal. how do I wean him off safely? How do you wean off this medication slowly and safely. It has never helped his depression, he has started lithium and seems okay, he was extremely senitivie to all medications, like zoloft prozac, all very bad.
4623948 tn?1357374485 could it be possible muscle spasms of the heart, our heart is a muscle. I thought Mitral heart valve because that medication causes high cholesterol but it didnt show up on tests plus it wasnt consistent. It went away but am scared to take my medication again because of it, not taking it now because im pregnant.
Avatar m tn I am currently on zyprexa after a loss (catheter piercing his heart) of a child. Well I notice lactation is side affect of the meds. When I try to get pregnant again will that affect it? Should I change meds? Also I had to take progesterone to help regulate my cycles in the past. Thanks!
Avatar n tn has anyone ever have trouble breathing all day everyday some days better than others going down from 2.5 to half of zyprexa and how long does it last . ive been on 2.5 for 10 yrs or so and every time i try going off or down i have trouble breathing after 2 weeks of going down of off, it has been 2 months and still having trouble. I know it from going down because when i would go back up to 2.5 my breathing got better.
Avatar n tn She is taking 20mg. Zyprexa, and 250mg. Seroquel for her bipolar disorder. She is also taking 10mg. Vasotec and 25mg. Hydrochlorozide (don't know if I spelled that correctly) for her blood pressure. Recently she has been experiencing a high resting heart rate in the low 100's. This has been happening when she is very emotional. Her psychiatrists says that's a medical condition. Her general doctor says it's due to her nerves from the bipolar disorder.
Avatar m tn So knowing he has bipolar they admninstered zprexa to help him with his agitation. But the zyprexa leaded to rhabdomyolysis which led to acute renal failure then to cardiac arrest and he passed away. I was just wondering if thats something that should been giving to a person who just had open heart surgery?
616450 tn?1228437227 He said thyroid patients and diabetics are at an increased risk for heart problems (which I already knew). Has any one had a stress test and found out their heart is actually OK, like I hope and pray mine is? Meanwhile, I get to stop wearing the CardioPAL event monitor in less than a week, which makes me happy. I'm just so worried about the heart thing now. I am WAY too young to have a heart condition.
401554 tn?1270217356 I am on Zyprexa 2.5 mg for depression. It has practically cured me but my heart is beating out of synch all the time now. I was diagnosed with a harmless heart arrhythmia a year ago and the Zyprexa is making it much worse. My cardiologist and psychiatrist said it was nothing to worry about but I'm scared. Risperdal also had the same effect, too. I tried Abilify but It made me way too jittery. Has anyone else out there experienced this?
Avatar f tn anyway, ever since then, I feel like my heart gets strained if I do too much, If I run, cartwheel, do ab exercises,workout racing my heart.
633284 tn?1271718018 I get heart arrythmias daily some small some big. I have had 4-5 ECGs and and ultra sound of my heart and a holter monitor for a month and also 2 x-rays...everything came back nornal as well as all blood work. I started suffering from panic attacks b/c of my heart in the first place....I felt the need to pass out I never do but it feels like it. I breath slowly and I either lay back with my legs up or put my head between my legs and usually I am okay.
Avatar m tn ive never done that before,any health risks of skipping a dose of zyprexa for 36-48 hours?
Avatar f tn I've been on zyprexa for 16 years I'm having serious withdrawal side effects I'm having shortness of breath pains in my back and left chest and under my rib cage sleep apnea and trouble sleeping rapid heartbeat I'm itching all over and my tongue gets stiff every so often and I have hot flashes and chills and headaches and pains in my head I went to the doctor thank got every teste I could done a colonoscopy endoscopy heart enzymes check chest x ray and all blood work done and a full physical eve
Avatar m tn Well I do enjoy it but sometimes like you said impulses and behaviors get out of hand somttimes one thing that does scare me is my heart rate the first time I was in the hopi tal i should h ave stroked out they said. But im on lithium I was also on blood pressure medicine and zyprexa but I did not like it what about you?
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 n tn They firsy put me on lamictal and I wound up in the hospital with serious rashes. Now, I am on zyprexa qhich makes me want to eat everything in sight. It seems to have me syabilized but now I have read about the countess thousands of people who have gotten diabetes from taking zyprexa. I have high blood sugar anyway, so I assume I am at high risk. What should I do? Switch meds? If so, yo what? Or, stay with zyprexa? Any advice would be appreciated.
