Zyprexa withdrawal headache

Common Questions and Answers about Zyprexa withdrawal headache

zyprexa

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 m tn How do I treat headaches from Zyprexa withdrawal? I was put on this medicine by my doctor to keep me from believing in telepathy. When I asked any of my doctors if telepathy existed they would not answer, stay quiet, or not suggest reasons it didn't exist. I am more mature now and figured out the truth about telepathy. It doesn't exist. I have been on Zyprexa for many years and do not need it anymore.
Avatar n tn There's not much information on Zyprexa withdrawal but I can assure you, that insomnia is one of them if you do not taper slowly. I did it cold turkey on 5 mg and did not sleep for 2 weeks (absolutely 0 sleep believe it or not) so I had to go back on the 5 mg and taper very slowly. Even when you are successful at getting off the drug, your sleep with not be normal. You can expect at most 5 hours.
Avatar n tn My son is experiencing 7.5 mg zyprexa withdrawel I believe. He has been in bed on and off for 4 days with headache and very sick to stomach. How long with this go on????? What can help the stomach???? He has only been on this med for 3 months. I would hate to see what someone on this for years would go through!
Avatar n tn I have been on Zyprexa for over 8 months started weaning off a few months ago and stopped it a week ago ever since then the treamors i was having have gotten worse and my stomach has been upset ive lost 7 pounds in a week and my sleep has been really bad my doctor told me to take rozerem helps a little and been a little more anxious then i was on it. I'm also taking 40 mgs of Paxil and .5 mgs of klonopin have been for a few yrs. My question is how much longer are these withdrwals going to last.
Avatar n tn I figured by now I was chemically addicted to Zyprexa by now, as Eli Lilly claims untrue, but many of you confirm otherwise. Eli Lilly states that Zyprexa has not been observed to produce noticeable effects upon withdrawal. Except that whatever symptoms the sufferer(patient) already has, will return quickly, appearing to be withdrawal symptoms. B.S. Figuring I was addicted, I decided to switch to the other drug, which my doctor told me would not likely work.
Avatar n tn vertigo, headache, nausea, and general weakness. iOn this third day, off Effexor and on Wellbutrin, I have crying jags and unexpected significant irritability. My pharmacist and doctor's nurse do not have an answer so I turn to those who have used these drugs. 1) Does Wellbutrin have known interactions with other drugs.
Avatar f tn I now want to come of olanzapine because these symptoms are distressing, however I fear I will suffer extreme anxiety and withdrawal symptoms from this, does the doctor put you on an alternative drug to reduce this, and what can i do to reduce the symptoms myself?
Avatar n tn Jennifer, be careful coming off this drug, my Mom did the seizure & halucination thing bad coming off of a combo of klonopin & oxycontin. I searched on klonopin & the seizures can be caused from just coming off of it. Good luck to ya!
Avatar n tn , got sick, ended up in the hospital and then saw the doctor next day. He put me back up to 3 mg. xanax every day and 10 mg. zyprexa zydis. So, I've been taking that then since last summer. I finally got off all the medication, the zyprexa I got off in January completely and the xanax I finished my last dose on April 13th. I reduced sometimes every week a half mg. and then someone told me to reduce by 1/4 mg. I never even had panic disorder to begin with...my doctor misdiagnosed me.
Avatar n tn I want to switch to Wellbutrin, but am extremely concerned about withdrawal side effects. Ran out of prescription for 4 days once and it was horrible! I also have RA-and sleep issues related to pain are a constant for me. Can you please advise on how to effectively reduce the Effexor-how much and at what rate? Also-I have been prescribed Wellbutrin xl 150mg that I can take with the Effexor. How long should I do that before I attempt to reduce the Effexor?
447130 tn?1225474466 seroquel willknock you out or a handful of 5-htp the latter i do not suggest on any level of course. Seroquel sent me straight into headache mania afterwards though. isuppose we are all different. I am surprised i took them, very low week last week trauma brings on rash actions. Pills are not the way forward. Dark room from 8.30 onwards in silence, think yourself out and drift off.
Avatar n tn I woke up and jumped out of my bed terrified at what I was feeling. Terrible headache, nausea, crazy thoughts and visual hallucinations. Waves of energy ran through my body almost like I was on fire on the inside. I was completely physically agitated and could not sit down or eat. I had to pace or walk or run just to get the nervousness to be bearable. I actually ran circles around my house and one day I ran down my street in a sprint right out of bed, almost naked.
318307 tn?1193934917 i think that most of the extreme symptoms are passed. i only have a mild, though still constant, headache. i am having nausea only in the morning, though i have to be careful not to eat too much because my stomach is very sensitive and feels much smaller since i haven't really been eating this past week because of my symptoms. i have a constant vague sick-to-my-stomach feeling, though it is much better than it was just a few days ago.

Also horrible insomnia and complete loss of appetite.

Avatar f tn It is better to have this evaluated by an opthalmologist so that further tests is done. Glaucoma is one differential but if you have a history of migraine headache, this could inf\deed be related. Take care and do keep us posted.

735676 tn?1257575826 I posted this originally in the headache forum, but after an invitiation to join this group from marileew, I thought I would post it again here for any additional insight. For the past ten years I have been suffering with dibilatating migraines, insomuch that I am completely incapacitated for the duration of the migraine (lasting anywhere from a day to three or more days in a row) and oftentimes feeling completely fatigued and depressed afterward.
Avatar f tn The only difference I feel is a huge headache this morning. Will this medication eventually work and I just have to give it time? I have been on Ambien for the last 2 years, but I can only take it once every seven days (20mg) or it will not work. I average about 2-3 hrs of sleep without sleep medication, I can literally go 36hrs straight with out any sleep, and then I crash and can actually sleep 4-5 hrs, but I am used to it and do not have a problem with work or any other activities.

Avatar n tn When I decided in March of last year to stop the effexor, even with tapering off of it like my Doctor told me, I still had bad withdrawal. I ended up stopping effexor and then joining weight watchers, that seemed to help my depression more than any medications. Good luck to you. You also have to remember that everyone reacts different to medications. What made me gain weight may make you lose. Good luck!
20003388 tn?1515169640 First off, let me say, I'm sorry about your issue with Paxil withdrawal. I've heard that Paxil is the worst med to withdrawal from, especially cold Turkey. Having been through it myself, albeit not as bad as you, I can say its pretty bad. I've cold turkeyed from just about every SSRI and Effexor as well. I've come off Lamotrigine, Gabapentin, Zyprexa and Seroquel cold Turkey as well (not by choice) and Paxil was, by far, the worse withdrawal. I appreciate all the input from both of you.
Avatar f tn my mom listened to the doc who said 'it's not addicting' and i didn't even know what addiction was.......all i knew was that if i faked a headache, i could take a pill and feel REALLY good. any doctor who says this drug isn't addicting should no longer be a doctor.
1303113 tn?1303083307 withdrawal symptoms. stopping any med must always happen under doctors supervision. often times (especially with stuff like xanax) verry slow tapering is required (for more info about this: read up on the ashton method) some people are better off on drugs, some people are better off off. i guess people with heart arrhythmias may be in for a long rough time before things get better when they decide to taper their sedative meds.
