>I do not favor the use of antipsychotics in nonpsychotic patients for purposes of sleep. Messing with the dopamine system is risky and should be reserved for cases where there is much more at stake than just a sleep issue. My opinion.
Yeah I'm taking zyprexa for a mixed episode 5 months ago. I still think I would have been better off in the long run not ever taking it at all. Now, my doc wants me to stop taking it. I never should have needed an antipsycotic, the conditions which brought me to the point of mixed mania 2 times easily could have been avoided. I am concerned about the health of my brain for sure.
I'm on Zoloft 150 soon to be 100. When I started 200 mgs I noticed an improvement but after 2 weeks my head hurt more than before and I felt more numb. I am also on Depakote 1500 soon to go down to 1000.
