anti-psycotic or benzo

Posted by geno on December 20, 2001, at 17:40:34

Hello, sometimes i suffer from parinoia, extreme anxiety, fear. i know this is basically a panic attack, i use 1mg of xanax, which calms me dearly. Now say if one was suffereing a panic attact, and was not diagnosed with scizo. If i too zyprexa instead of xanax, would i feel more "releif". How and why are antisycotics used instead of benzos?
HOW is one to know if he or she is suffereing from TOO MUCH DOPAMINE, or if its just gaba disfuncions?

If the 1 mg Xanax helps you I would stick to that. There are little or no side effects compared to Zyprexa. If you werereally a little psychotic/schitzo whatever, the Xanax would not make you feel much better as it does. Talk to an expert, but I feel the older meds such as Xanax beat Buspar, Zyprexa, etc if the patient is suffering big time anxiety, panic attacks. You may some kind of combo. I take 60 mgs and Xanax 2x a day; it's a big help for me. Good luck.
