Hi Denise,

That's a very good question. I never really accepted the diagnosis if bipolar until my doctor (GP) put me on Effexor XR and Zyprexa. I have always been the type to fly off the handle for the smallest things. Also, sleep has ALWAYS been a problem for me. Since taking these medications I am much more on an even keel. I too have wondered if it was both medications together or just one that I benefit from. My only complaint is it is now very hard to arise in the mornings and I sleep too much now, and I have overall less motivation. I have thought about stopping the Zyprexa to see what difference that will make. The only reason I haven't because I feel it is the Zyprexa which helps me sleep. Good question.
