> So the zyprexa didn't give you diabetes? Thats good to know!

~Well, I still blame or highly suspect the Zyprexa, even though it was something like seven years later that I was diagnosed. The pre-diabetes started around its time, if I recall correctly.

>My cholesterol is mostly normal, HDL is a little low. Triglicerides were a little high last time.

~In the past year or two my triglycerides have been a little bit higher than my lab's normal range as well.

>I've been taking zyprexa for 11 years. I also take perphenazine too now. How do you find it compares to the zyprexa? I wanted it to replace the zyprexa but it just couldn't..

~My memory is sort of cloudy about the time that I took Zyprexa and then Seroquel, and why I went off of them. My use was for depression and traits of OCD, and was always with at least one antidepressant in the cocktail, and I used different antidepressants with the Zyprexa and Seroquel than I am now with the perphenazine, so I can't compare apples and apples. But I agree with you in thinking the Zyprexa is more powerful. I was given just one dose of Zyprexa Zydis when I was hospitalized two years ago, and I do remember being amazed at how powerfully it calmed me down from an angry depressed state. I am happy the mix you have of Zyprexa and perphenazine sounds like its working well.
