No, Zyprexa won't happen. Too many metabolic and weight issues with Z. I don't think my pdoc likes it.
But taking Quel twice/day is a good thought. I seem to have overcome the sedstion. Maybe 50mg XR morning and evening... and see what happens. Total dose has to be 300mg or less. No dopamine antagonism is needed.
