In reply to Augmenting Zyprexa with Saphris?, posted by Bob12 on July 4, 2012, at 9:56:11
bob....hey how u doing....anyways saphris is new and I really can't give you much of review of its effects until I actually read and research on it for a long time. But I know Zyrexa vary well...its calming i take 20mg...it gives anxiety releif to some people similar to benzo's even thought its not one, and me too...
the only thing that I would have to just say this about mixing these is tartive dsykanisia and nueroleptic malgliant syndrome...these both are serious condition when a antipsychotic is used at a too high dose...
I was taking Geodon two 80mg at night with Zyrexa 10mg and it didnt have any serious effect that is documented. I felt pretty drugged out...and alot of my thoughts where calmed and blocked...its wierd to descibe a psychotic medication expierience because they have kinda wierd effects, but overall they calm people down who have high dopamine levels associated with Schizophrenia. Like the closest expierience I had with geodon and zyprexa was having much reduced thinking with some sedation. It's not like the xanax feeling that makes you feel better when your stressed out...its diffrent.
i don't think it would be harmful at all...if the doses where used in low-moderate doses...if both medication where together at their max doses then that may create a problem with TD.
ask your doctor and be eleberate why you think it may be beneficial.
I am not a scholar but I do understand distress.
