2.5mg zyprexa is the lowest dose. You should try a higher dose probably 10mg or 7.5mg. The anger is probably from the decrease in lexapro. And the dose of zyprexa is not high enough. Zyprexa will make you hungry and sedated. What time do you take the zyprexa? The best time is before bed. This way the hunger is when you sleep. Do try to control the hunger, it can lead to weight gain. Zyprexa is notorious for this. The only reason to take it during the day would be to get maximum benifit from the low dose. There are meds you can take with the zyprexa to wake you up during the day. I take wellbutrin sr for this. Also when you get to a higher dose check you blood sugar, zyprexa can make it high. Zyprexa is a great med, you just need a higher dose. Zyprexa will get rid of the anger at an apropriate dose. It should also get rid of anxiety and suicidal thoughts.
