Lexapro,Zyprexa, Depakote hell. Please help!

Posted by MCP on May 22, 2004, at 3:13:27

I went into the hospital 6 months ago for addiction to alcohol and ativan. They put me on Lexapro, Zyprexa, and depakote. The withdrawals from Ativan were hell. Anyways, things were going along great until 6 weeks ago. I had weened my zyprexa down to 5 milligrams and the depakote to 250 mg. I decided to stop taking both of them. Well, I crashed bad from that. I thought they were nonaddictive and it wouldn't be a problem. Besides, I was on a low dose. Well, I started seeing a pdoc. He started me back up on them. This time he tried to have me go from 5 to 2.5 of zyprexa once at night. I crashed again. I literally thought I was dying. When I am on them I am foggy and disoriented and that scares me. When I try to go off I go through hell. I am losing all hope and terrible thoughts are going through my head. My brain feels like it is trapped in hell. Does anyone have thoughts on this? Are there ways to offset withdrawals from zyprexa and depakote? I know people will say there aren't withdrawals from them, but my experience says there are. If anyone has any ideas here I would much appreciate it. THanks in advance.
