Reduction of the Zyprexa// Sebastian

In reply to Re: Thanks!!! One more question to Sebastian, posted by Sebastian on June 25, 2004, at 19:22:40

Hi Sebastian:
The reason why I've been on 5 mg. Zyprexa is due to 'ultradian Rapid cycler' along with 'Rageous manic.' Then, without Zyprexa, I'm sometime way off the road not able to function everyday's tasks, ... even going out 'shopping' needs to be 'EXTRA' cautious. Because, any provacative actions/talkings makes me SO angry, .. not often but I can NOT take 'a chance' outside my house.

Your idea on reduction of the Zyprexa mentioned above is also a ‘terrific idea.’ However, in my case, I can NOT practice this. On the otherhand, I can do this reduction on 'Wellbutrin SR' by switching around from 250 mg. to 100 mg., although this 'switch' does NOT occur often. When doing this, I normally a bit 'good' moods. In my guess/hunch, the reason behind is another anti-dep., Serzone I've been on seems 'pitching'/compensating the missing part of WB sr my depression asking. Once I was on the 400 mg. WB sr,, then gradually all way cut back to 200 mg., .... even 100 mg. WITHOUT any problems. I've been PERFECTLY OK on cutting back WB sr. I never experience any of those 'withdrawal' symptoms.

In the case of Zyprexa, .... I had such a 'BIG' trouble not sleeping well as mentioned the above upon the reduction from 5 mg. to 2.5 mg. Although this is my another 'guess,' ... if I take 'sleeping aid,' I may able to withstand the reduction of Zyprexa???

Then, my question is, .... if you don't mind ...
Besides Zyprexa, how many med./meds. you've been on?

Also, I might be pretty 'sensitive' to the reduction of the Zyprexa. However, on the road ahead, I plan definitely cut back a dosage of the Zyprexa, ... possibly from 5 mg. to around 3.75 mg.
