OK, she came off the mellaril, and is NOT doing well. She went onto the zyprexa, but she didn't know her own name, or where she lived, this is not charateristic of her.
She went to the emergency room, and they told her to get off of the zyprexa.
So now she is going really loopy, not sleeping etc.
My dad had to take over her medications.
Can anyone offer any advice. She's been on mellaril for like 20 years, and now she's on nothing, and she's totally paranoid etc.
I asked before, but I forgot to take it down. What, still available, is most similar to mellaril ?
THe problem, as I see it, is that she's had like zero activity at her d1,d2 receptors, and that the zyprexa isn't blocking them enough.
