> Anyone taking Zyprexa, NOT as an anti-psychotic, but for its antidepressant and mood stabilizing properties?? I'm curious since some studies are showing it has promise in thesse areas.
All anti-psychotics have AD effects but I feel one should exhaust traditional AD's because all anti-psychotics have the potential for permanate
neurological damage with long term use. This effect is often hidden and happens late in the treatment and does not go away with discontinuation of the med. With schizophrenia these meds are clearly indicated but in depression there are too many meds with a much safer side effect profile.
