> I am taking Effexor 225mg + Klonopin 2-4mg for Depression, Anxiety and Borderline Personality symptoms. My PDoc added Risperdal against my impulsivity and obsessive ideation (i.e. Serotogenic augmentation). I had sexual dysfunction since it raised my Prolactin to the skies, so we switched to Zyprexa 5mg/day. This is effective for me, but I am to tired and not able to concentrate.
> Is there any way to counteract this sedating effect ? Anything to add to the cocktail ? My PDoc says Seroquel is even more sedating. Is that true ? We still don't have Geodon here. Actually, I don't like that dopamine antagonism at all. I'll happily do without it.

Hi:

You can get Zyprexa in 2.5mg doses, and I have tried both 5 and 2.5, and you may find 2.5 less sedating. At 5mg, with my Effexor, I was very much a Zombie. 2.5 seems more tolerable. Give it a shot...let us know how it works out!

Best wishes..

Jay
