yeah, I don't get the lithium+zyprexa thing either. Lithium can make side effects from antipsychotics worse. But, whatever--I'm sure you doc(s) had reason to choose this combo.

I hope you get better soon. Dropping the zyprexa, or lowering the dose, might be a good idea. I would say try Abilify or Geodon (weight issues), but zyprexa is more sedating and both of the more weight-neutral options have a problem with activation/stimulation. Probably not what you're after.

Good luck.
