John L - First, thanks for being on this board! I read you a lot!

Maybe I asked you this in another thread, but what would you advise for someone who did magnificently well on Zyprexa, but for whom the weight gain and blood sugar problems forced me to go off it? My pdoc and I are currently combing the web, thinking about Zyprexa and Glucophage. Both Geodon and Ripserdal made me unpleasantly fatigued and dopey, during first week, so didn't continue.

Am presently on Dex (happily, long term,) Effexor, and now, without Zyprexa, need trazadone & a benzo to sleep. This is 3rd week of Omega-3 trial for BPII, so far nothing much. Don't tolerate TCAs, SSRIs or Prozac, allergic to Wellbutrin. Other dxs: ADD, TLE and CFS.

My head was the clearest ever, with Zyprexa.

Do you see Adrafinil as a possiblity, in this mix? Any other med suggestions? Am willing to import!

Thanks so much,
