Hi again. :) You know what? You and I sound almost like we're the opposite in some ways. Because I could never take that much Zyprexa without getting so hungry I couldn't stand it! Even only 2.5mg would do that to me.

And I have taken Depakote before, but if I have Prozac or Geodon (one or both of them is killing my appetite, which is a GREAT thing), then I don't think weight gain should be a problem. Also I will be taking the ER version at bedtime, which is supposed to help with side effects, including weight gain and tiredness.

And as for Wellbutrin... Oh my gosh did that make me anxious! That's something I can't take. But then again it's all about finding the right combo. Some meds play well together and some don't. I have been trying to find a good match for a while now.

I know you didn't mention it, but Lamictal makes me so anxious if I take more than 75mg! Even with Depakote or whatever. I seem to have the opposite side effects of what most people have.

Thanks again for responding. I'm very happy you did! :) Take care and I hope everything is going your way!


Hugs,

> Depakote will make you gain weight like the zyprexa will. I use to take it, with zyprexa and gained. Also very tired.
>
> Geodon, didn't do much but make me angry. Gained weight on it. It did have an anti-depressant effect.
>
> Prozac was not the right med for me, I stoped taking it several times, because I didn't think it was working, I tried all the genarics. I stoped it, and many years later to celexa with great results.
>
> Depakot may have done something, but I didn't think it worked and quit after a year. made me very slow.

> Never took the others.

> I also take wellbutrin sr for energy. The abilify does this very well, and it lowers my blood sugar, raises my metabolizem, does not make me hungry, but I lost a ton of weight in 4 months, 20 lbs which I gained from the geodon low dose zyprexa mix.
