> Has anybody had any experience with Zyprexa for atypical depression? I'm also taking Celexa and Wellbutrin, have never had any psychotic symptoms.

Sounds kinda funky to me. Zyprexa is used for psychotic symptoms and mania. Some Pdocs use it for other stuff, like anxiety, agitation, insomnia, etc. which they really shouldnt do. For atypical depression, the most commonly recommended drugs are the older MAOIs. There is also a new experimental drug called Gepirone which is supposed to be marketed for atypical depression. Maybe you could get into an open clinical trial for Gepirone.

If you have no psychotic symptoms I would leave the Zyprexa alone. Is not worth the risk of EPS and other neurological damage.
