Have you changed the dose of Zyprexa AT ALL within, say, the last month? When I was on it (for 2 years) and tried to wean off by lowering the dose about 2-3 weeks LATER I went into a major suicidal state. I saw no reason to live (& in reality I have tons) and I just wanted to die. My husband had to hold my face and tell me it was the medicine and to wait longer! I ended up back on the Zyprexa until this year when I took a full year to wean off by very, very slowly reducing it until I was literrally taking a speck a day. In the mean time I went on to Lamictal (200mg/day) and Recently onto Geodon (still checking that one out). So, I do wonder if increasing the Zyprexa is a good idea? I AM NO EXPERT ON THIS! Just sharing my experience.
So sorry to hear how you feel. I have BEEN THERE. Continue to hold on, be strong, mind over mind. It WILL get better.
PS: I have to say it really was/is the Lord that keeps me alive but I don't want to offend anyone and get kicked off the board...but it's true
