Seroquel/Zyprexa ZOMBIE-HELP!!!!

Posted by amt on April 1, 2003, at 22:08:52

I have been on 20mg of Zyprexa for the last 2 years for my Bipolar (also on 500mg of Topamax; 300mg of Effexor)...Zyprexa has been like my miracle drug...(when I take it...I seem to have a 'thing' about feeling good and trying to 'do' without it; but that's another story) Anyway, it keeps me stable, keeps my mind from 'going nuts', helps tremendously with my depression and 'psychotic' knocks me out so bad at night that I have what my pdoc has labeled as 'amnesia'...I get up in the middle of the night to take care of my kids (my husband of course has to wake me up) and I remember absolutely nothing the next day...and of course in the morning I am horrible at getting up...I just cannot function in the morning for at least an hour-I'm like the walking dead. So, about a month ago he finally decided to try something new-Seroquel-well, I'm up to 600 mg and it doesn't seem to be doing anything for me mentally-not at all like what Zyprexa does for me-I'm feeling a little depressed, 'foggy', and have that 'I don't give a damn' attitude; but I feel even more sedated on the Seroquel than the Zyprexa...and my pdoc wants me to increase the Seroquel???? I have been seeing this doctor for three years, what should I do? Can anyone recommend something, or share their experiences with me please? I asked him if I could try Abilify did hear some good things about that, but it was like he didn't hear me....I don't know what to do....Yes, the Zyprexa works; but yet, I have a family I need to think about too...I know this may seem like a petty problem-and I apologize for rambling on about something so minor, I just thought maybe someone out there might have had the same experience with the major sedation.....
