> I have been on zyprexa for 6 nights at 2.5 mg.I have anxiety and depression.All other meds have failed.The only AD med I have not given a good trial is effexor.
> I was taking seroquel for sleep and it helped a little with anxiety.I am looking for more anti-anxiety and depression reliefe plus better sleep, so i switched to zyprexa 2.5mg.At first it seemed to calm me a little during the day, but after 6 days I am feeling fatiqued,tired,headaches, and it is hard to think.I feel uncomfortable mentally so i cut the med back to 1.25mg at bed.Also, I needed a sleep med on top of the zyprexa to sleep at night.I should say it has slowed my obsessive thinking down.
> Does anyone know if this is a sign that this med is not going to work for me?I feel I should go back to seroquel for the minimal reliefe.
> Thanks .....Stann

Zyprexa worked and made me sleep like a baby after about 4 or 5 days at 5mg. 1.25mg is almost an unclinical dose, although you may be terribly sensitive to it. It would explain why you would need something extra to sleep. 6 days begins to show signs of relief from an AP, but a real trial isnt for at least several weeks. I couldn't take it because of pseudoparkinsonism, eventually. I use Seroquel now. APs in general can give a "blunting" feeling of tiredness and disreality but if you're having that many side effects, after say another few days at least, then maybe you're right about Seroquel.
