Has schizoaffective disorder been ruled-out?
Axis II disorders are outside my scope of knowledge.
How much Zyprexa are you taking now?
> i have a string of sentences going on in my head and their overlapping eachother and that makes it very hard to talk, it gets so loud in there. in the hospital i started getting caught up in a formula that i created and started writing everything in binary code, it hurt to hear others talk cuz it interrupted my focus on getting all the sounds, words, string of sentences out of my head.
It might be worth looking into using perphenazine (Trilafon). It is an older antipsychotic that might help you "filter" out the "noise" in your head so that you can focus better. Risperdal would be another consideration. In addition to being an antipsychotic, it also seems to help with OCD.
I'm sorry you are having such a difficult time organizing your thoughts without the constant interruptions and OCD rituals. Please keep posting here. It might help to have the added support of the community here and also to create a journal that might offer you some sense of continuity.
