Good question. I've been wondering these 4 things:
Is it zyprexa withdrawals, still at 10 weeks with no change?
Is it an underlying condition that was progressing over time but being covered up by zyprexa?
Did zyprexa longterm change brain configuration enough that it might take years or forever to readjust?
Is it the lack of an ssri? (been on those for over 10 years)
I saw on other chat boards that some people went back on zyprexa after 3 months or even 9 months just to end the misery. Scary.
I have taken depakote. Several times. Each time it was wonderful for both depression and anxiety beginning the very first day. But then it would poop out in less than a week, and then nothing.
