> Thanks for the response. We used the Zyprexa to try and wipe out my OCD. All my diagnosis are extreme anxiety problems. But this is my worry: The Zyprexa is now almost all out of my system and I still feel depressed. Maybe the Nardil has pooped out- that really makes me want to cry. Maybe I should keep going with Nardil and let it 'recover' from Zyprexa buggering it up- if Zyprexa truly did. But when I was on 2.5 Zyprexa the Nardil actually kicked in so I don't know what to think. I am really panicking, I thought the depression was from the Zyprexa and would pass, now I'm not sure.

I've got a few comments for you: first, I'm getting really ticked off over the evident new trend of pdocs to put people who are not psychotics on drugs (e.g. anti-schizophrenic meds) that are intended for psychotics. This might reflect the arm twisting that goes on between the drug companies and physicians. My problem is Major Depressive Disorder (with anxiety) and I had this jackass pdoc who wanted to give me a small amount of some anti-psychotic medicine when I was having no success with certain anti-depressants. I'm glad I refused. When I searched out what this other med was intended for and what the possible side effects were (e.g. tardive diskenesia), I couldn't believe it.

You have access to the Internet: get in the habit of checking out any and every drug that's suggested for you before you buy or take even one tablet. I'm not saying that the Zyprexa was definitely the *wrong* med; it just seems to me that taking an anti-psychotic med for an OCD problem doesn't seem right.

Next: Statistically, I think it's unlikely that your Nardil has actually pooped out. Time will tell but try not to panic (easier said than done).

Last: Until this situation gets resolved, can you get onto an anti-panic agent such as Xanax or Klonopin? Just make sure that whatever you take is safe with the mix of chemicals in your bloodstream right now. Hope this helps.
