Actually, Zyprexa 5mg increases my motivation. Sometimes during the day my legs feel weak, and I think the Zyprexa causes that. But other than that, no problems.

Here's something you might try. Instead of taking it at bedtime, take it about 5:00pm to 6:00pm. The sedation part of it takes several hours before it kicks in. If you take it at bedtime, that is too late, and too much of the med will still be sedating you the next morning.

If this trick doesn't help, then you may have to consider switching to another med or adding another from a different class. Prozac and Zyprexa happen to go real well together, much better than either alone. Great for depression and bipolar. But if Zyprexa alone is causing too many problems, then you'll have to make a change or addition.

> Zyprexa 5mg. at bedtime makes me tired all the next day yet somehow indifferent as well. I really hate it!!!! Anybody have similar experiences?
