Common Questions and Answers about Zyprexa vs xanax


1353720 tn?1414506724 Hello everyone! I was on Zyprexa for about six months, and found that it helped treat a bunch of my symptoms. I'm happy that I don't have to deal with all the faces and the voices. However, I miss some of my friends. I have two recurring buddies" as I call them. Jack Nicholson happens to be one of them. He comes and goes, rarely ever speaks, and if he does it's only a few words. Usually just has amazing facial expressions.
5790942 tn?1374337921 When the physicians were bringing me off my high Xanax dose (ten years ago) I was put on Zyprexa. It was like a miracle. Anxiety gone, slept good, amazing. But I happen to beone of the unfortunate few that began to suffer from Tardive Dyskinesia or involuntary muscle movements. My lower lip would tremble and go crazy even while talking. Scared me, since I then read that such side effects can be irreversible-permanent. I quit Zyprexa.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have been somewhat in the situation that you are in. My doctor had me on 1 mg. Xanax 4 times a day. After a year or so, I sat down with my doctor, and explained that the xanax was not working as well as it once did. He kept me on the same dose of xanax and added Vistaril. It only took a couple of days before I was back in his office being taken off of the Vistaril. I had severe headaches not to mention that I flipped and totaled my brand new pathfinder.
Avatar n tn It's called shifting and rotating. Sometimes they give you Zyprexa with it to stop that. I might go back on Zyprexa at night. I am not sure. Write me too.
Avatar m tn Lithium if not monitered closely is toxic and there are many other meds that can work just.as well. I for one take celexa and zyprexa . Bi polars should really be on a mood stabilizer as well as an anti depressant. One with out the other will tip you in the opposite direction and the key to managing bi polar is to be stable. I personally hated being on the lithium.
317787 tn?1473362051 I hope it lasts! Now I take the Lunesta wether I need it or not and the zyprexa. I got the zyprexa more for anger management but my study doc is the one who suggested it. She has prescribed it for many people on treatment. Check it out or something similar. Hope you get to feeling better for longer stretches soon. I am doing shot 39 tonight . Putting it off until the last minute!

1666464 tn?1303228958 I'm really trying to manage my anxiety but it seems impossible to find a doctor understanding enough to prescribe me something for my anxiety that doesn't leave me retarded, like trying to put me on Lithium, Depakote or Zyprexa, which all I have tried. I've tried everything to try and 'tame' my anxiety that I experience on Vyvanse.
Avatar n tn My phychiatrist has tried zyprexa, seroquil, nuerontin....im already on xanax and have been for about four years....but I feel like I am going crazy. Nothing helps me feel any joy even though I do take celexa as well. So now that Im off of opiates I have lost my TWO jobs because I cannot funtion, have gotten into a car wreck because Im completely out of sorts, cannot go outside because of my anxiety....cannot sleep....
Avatar n tn Has anyone else experienced weight gain AFTER reducing their Effexor dosage? I stared taking Xanax about a year ago, as well. And I'm diabetic. My sugar levels stay in the mid- 300's( not good). Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn As soon as I read that a loud to my fiancee and I he told me to take it out right away.I went to my PCP and she gave me Paxil and XanaX but havent taken either. I am too afraid, (again because of my anxiety). Well, I started to get better after about a week of not having the nvaring in but I am still going thru a depression period. I think that its because I consumed myself with panic, racing thoughts the whole nine that I now I dont know how to get out of it.
