Hi J,

>i was planning for sipralexa but will it interfear with the Lecithin, vitamin B complex, & folic acid ?

No, I don't think so. I'm at bit worried about you going back on Sipralexa (Lexapro) though, why not try another antidepressant? Sipralexa seemed to cause some strange side effects before. I think you should ask your pdoc for advice on which other antidepressants you could try, I'm not sure which antidepressants are available in Belgium.

Did you prefer Prozac or Sipralexa?

no i still plan on taking zyprexa, but i need to loose 10 kilos and the sipralexa once allowed me to loose kilos in a fast way, must be the energy willpower this medicine gives me to hold onto my diet


prozac also gave me willpower to keep a hold on things

Hi J,

SSRIs like Sipralexa and Prozac often cause weight loss in the short term, they tend to cause weight gain in the long run though!

i found something


Dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE) is a natural choline precursor. Although some preliminary data suggested that DMAE could decrease TD symptoms,16 most studies show that DMAE is no more effective than placebo for TD.17


ESPECIALLY THIS ONE!!! READ IT ED!!!

One doctor has found that administering the trace mineral manganese (15 mg per day) can prevent the development of TD and that higher amounts (up to 60 mg per day) can reverse TD that has already developed.18 Other researchers have reported similar improvements with manganese.19 20

Several people have experienced an improvement in TD while taking evening primrose oil (EPO).21 In a double-blind study, however, supplementing with EPO (12 capsules per day) resulted only in a minor, clinically insignificant improvement.22

Hi J,

I don't know what a safe dose of manganese is. I think we need to ask Larry Hoover what a safe dose is.

Ed.

PS. Manganese is a mineral.

Hi J!

I think it would be fine to take lecithin and Zyprexa together, I don't know of any interaction.

>those herbs

What herbs?

Well, I stumbled on this thread by accident. My mind-reading abilities are unreliable. ;-)

The UL (Upper Limit) for manganese is set at 11 mg/day. I haven't studied this mineral to know what is involved in restricting safe intake to that level, but exceeding it should probably be done on the advice of, and with supervision by, a medical professional.

As far as I can tell, the use of manganese to treat tardive dyskinesia dates back to three papers from 1977, none with abstracts available. I can find nothing more recent than these three references. (Aside: If it worked, wouldn't the practise be commonplace today? Are the risks of toxicity too high?)

There is continuing research into a correlation between a manganese-containing enzyme (called manganese superoxide dismutase, or MgSOD) and vulnerability to tardive dyskinesia. Those with a mutant gene for this enzyme are more vulnerable to TD, probably through the toxic effects of auto-oxidation of dopamine.

Oral supplements of 15 mg/day manganese do significantly boost MgSOD at about ninety days of treatment. Shorter, high-dose treatments might be considered (like that 60 mg/day figure), but medical supervision would be a darn good idea. Symptoms of manganese toxicity are something like Parkinson's disease. People with disturbed liver function shouldn't use manganese supps, as bile is the major route of excretion for this mineral.

So, if your liver works okay, 15 mg/day oral supp is probably fine. If neuropathy develops, symptoms should resolve on discontinuation of the manganese, if you stop immediately.

TO EDUK !!! ABOUT ZYPREXA WEIGHT GAIN

Posted by Jeroen on March 24, 2005, at 19:57:59

In reply to Re: reverse tardive dyskinesa upto 60 mg Jeroen, posted by Larry Hoover on March 24, 2005, at 16:41:30

hey ed, im looking for ways that i dont gain weight while im on zyprexa because it can be a possible treatment for my eye problem

I was first thinking of amantadine
now ive read something about wellbutrin. read this:


My daughter (16) also gained a huge amount of weight on zyprexa - 65 pounds! As you know, this compounded her depression - although it did help enormously with her psychotic thinking. Everytime I mentioned this to a doc and/or psychologist we got -"I don't know why this is happening", "you certainly don't look like you've gained that much weight", - or my favorite, "keep lots of carrot and celery sticks around!". Finally, by accident we have seemed to hit on a partial solution - although I don't know if this will help your sister. Because her depression was actually getting worse, her doc changed her anti depressant (she's been on prozac, paxil, zoloft, &luvox) to wellbutrin. Her doc said - "one of the side effects with wellbutrin is an increased energy level and a low appetite!" . I played this down with my daughter because I didn't want to get her hopes up for the zillionth time. To shorten this - her appetite has decreased and her energy is up - went out and bought herself a treadmill (she is too self conscious to walk in the daytime) - she's lost about 10 pounds over the last 3 - 4 weeks - which is a safe and steady loss. She's still on her zyprexa so things are actually on an upswing! - Incidently, she was on stelazine too - what a nightmare! Her energy was so low that she not only fell asleep in school but I had to struggle to keep her from going to bed befor 7 PM! The final straw was when she began to lose her fine motor control! Best of luck - keep trying!


will wellbutrin, stop the weight gain?

Jeroen you worry too much. How tall are you and what is your wt in pounds? Wellbutrin is known to have a stimulant effect and some say it helps with wt loss. But, I don't think you want a stimulant do you? Your Posts show a lot of concentration. Whatever you're doing is obviously working for you. Fondly, Phillipa
