> Zyprexa has antidepressant properties, especially when combined with antidepressants. It might even be most successful when combined with Prozac than for any other drug. I don't know. I am sure that Prozac + Zyprexa will get more people well than Prozac alone. It already has.


Scott you know what Zyprexa plus SSRI did to me? Made me think about suicide more.

I have tried a whole bunch of things to treat my bipolar depression without success. When I decided to try Zyprexa, I did so with the information available concerning the risks of it producing EPS or TD. I thought the rates of occurrences of these things were low enough to feel comfortable taking it - especially at dosages of 5.0mg and less.

Again, here are the symptoms I get when I combine atypicals with SSRIs:

1)increased general depression feelings, increased suicidal thoughts
2) decreased appetite
3) worsened sleep
4) decreased libido
5) "numb" tongue feeling
6) muscle "pops and twitches"
7) tight muscle contractions
8) extreme tightness feeling on the back of my head (dystonia?)
