it is hard to remember but zyprexa at first made me feel quite better. but sitll big depression left, when i took it a second time it relieved me from a severely suicidal state that celexa put me in. the longer i took celexa in the hospital the more mind torture came around. and i absolutely had to stop it. they put me into a maximum security hospital ward in some other hospital for mentally ill youth. every moment painful to be alive. the first dose of zyprexa i was put on at that time suddenly and VERY quickly began to have a claming effect and i became all drowsy too and easily fell asleep... i had severe insomnia at that time due to my ear ringing loudly and celexa causing sleep trouble. zyprexa put me to sleep very well.

as the days went by i started the feel better. 3 days after i was sent home. no longer suicidal. but i still felt very bleh. i stopped getting better but i think it was very livable on the zyprexa. i didn't have thoughts of suicide. oh and in the hospital i began to have a big appetite. the next day after the first dose. i had quite the appetite back. or maybe the day after. at home i kept taking it for weeks but i just began to become more and more tired on it. so much day time sleepiness. i didn't want to settle for that. so i went on to try new things. also it made my length of sleep very long. i would sleep 12-14 hours a day. and my dreams would be very vivid and clear. which means very low quality sleep. i dont remember much else.

oh and risperdal. i went on it when i was taking ativan 0.5mg 3 times a day and also immovane for sleep since it was a bit hard for me to sleep. risperdal after a few days had quite the effect. i suddenly had motivation to do some level design for a certain game and was doing things. being more motivated. i felt actually quite okay. that effect deminished over time. i was on risperdal for maybe 3 months. in the end the evenings would turn to hell, i would have so much fear and anxiety in late evenings. right at the time when i would take the risperdal. perhaps i needed a higher dose. the dirty doctor gave up on me though and never wanted to change anything. so i never saw her again. i dunno what kind of side effects i had on risperdal. i tend to almost never have any physical side effects from any of the meds i try. except from sexual disfunction from certain types.
