Question about Zyprexa...

Posted by sheilac on July 25, 2012, at 13:33:19

Currently, we all know that I am taking low dose Lithium.

About 2 years ago before I moved, my doc at the time gave me some samples of Zyprexa and told me I could break them up into smaller doses.

I absolutely LOVED zyprexa. It got me through a terrible time in my life, but as soon as I moved I found a new doc and stopped taking it.

The reason I stopped taking Zyprexa was because I was terrified of weight gain. I think I ended up splitting the tablet into 2.5mg It made me a nice person. I probably could have taken 5mg.

My question is do people really gain a ton of weight on Zyprexa? Does it have calming, antidepressant factors to it? Is the weight gain with Zyprexa about the same or more than the weight gain with Lithium?

I think Zyprexa is an antipsychotic and I don't really like those drugs. I've heard a lot of bad things about relying on antipsychotics.

Any opinions?
