> Hello
My father-i-law has been resently put on Zyprexa for dementia. He also has a cardiac condition. I'm very concerned about the appropriate use of this drug with his pace-maker and is it Ok to use it to calm is occasional aggrssive outbursts from Alzheimer's (dementia)? Any advice would be appreciated.
> I've been in treatment for severe depression for about 4 years. I have tried almost every tricyclic, SSRI, Lithium, Depakote, Lamictal, Neurontin. Either they did not work or the side-effects were too bad. I also tried ECT without success.

> A few months ago, I was on Prozac and a small dose of Zyprexa. For the first time in a very, very long time I felt better. Then I don't know, I guess I got kind of hypomanic and my Dr. discontinued the Zyprexa.

> My question is whether there is something I could take in addition to that combo to stabilize the mood?

> Thanks.

> Donna
