Zyprexa Information Anyone?

Posted by jotho on September 27, 2001, at 8:20:02

Hello all...
I would like to approach my doc. with the idea of trying low-dosage zyprexa in conjunction with the adrafinil I am presently taking. Does anyone know of any articles referring to same that I can print out and show him regarding safety and efficacy, especially at low doses? Thank you in advance for any help you can give.......john

Hi,

I don't have any links to articles (the poster known as SalArmy4Me has zillions and hopefully will post some here 4 you). However, I *can* speak ffrom direct experience with Zyprexa, at a low dose!

My pdoc prescribed it for me at first to quell racing thoughts and catastrophic thinking, which it got rid. For weeks, however, I fought increased appetite, successfully, so I did not gain the usual weight that accompanies this med.

Not only did it quiet my racing mind, but now I take it in the evening and in conjunction with Klonopin, I *thank* Zyprexa for restoring my ability to fall and stay asleep.

For me (and I can only speak for myself), the lowest available dose (2.5 mg) is safe and effective. I don't know how it would be in conjunction with Adafranil ... however, I would encourage you to ask your pdoc about it!
Good luck,
-Janelle

Is 2.5mg an effective augmentation dose (with 10mg Prozac)?
