I found that the weight loss and hunger didn't drop right away. I took a couple of months on the generic before that happened. Currently I take brand zyprexa 2 times a week and generic the other days. Its hard to say if one is better than the other. But you may be right that the generic is not as strong. The only problem is I take a higher dose of the brand, just because of convenience. The brand pill is 15 and the generic is 10. I'm guessing that maybe I need 15mg of generic everyday. I was taking 15 brand everyday before the generic came out. So its hard to tell, becuase I made a dose reduction at that same time I started the generic.

Sleep. I sleep normal hours now, 8 hours, some times more some times less. Last night I took a 15mg and slept 12 hours, I was also sleep deprived before that.

Also drinking much less last 1.5 weeks. Didn't drink last night, had 3 day before and 3 day before that, but nothing for the previous 4 days, and 2 the day before. Before all that it was more like 4 everyday. I need to get my MCV number back down a bit. It was right at the upper limit 6 months ago. Taking B vits and folic acid was not helping, so I quit drinking to see if it goes down. I've got anouther blood test in 2 weeks.

I was late for work about 5-10min most days before the perphenazine reduction, I was also drinking a lot then. Now I'm early for work or on time. But not always getting enough sleep now that I've quit drinking.

I eat alot of fast food too. I work for a pizza store. I find as long as I don't eat sweets, my weight and sugars are ok. I just don't eat too much of it. Which is easy because my appatite is reduced. Sometimes I don't eat much at all. Anyways I'm 195 lbs now, down from 210 in April.

I'm not sure perphenazine is helping my psychy. I've been more down to earth since the decrease and less likely to self medicate now.
