Zyprexa update - I'm so confused/scared

Posted by jerseygal1 on August 11, 2011, at 17:08:50

Those of you who have been following my posts know that I was reluctant to start taking zyprexa. I finally did and I'm so confused/scared about where to go with it. I started with 2.5 then up to 5 mg which did nothing. My pdoc then had me increase to 7.5 mg which made me feel very flat, unemotional, and I think more depressed. I tried this for 5 days then went back to 5 mg. on my own. He wants me to increase to 10 mg. but I haven't yet as I'm afraid that it will make me feel even worse. My pdoc insists that zyprexa does not make you feel depressed. Did others have similar experiences as they went up on dose? I don't want to miss out on the chance that the 10 mg. could be the magic bullet yet I don't want to sink into a deeper hole. My diagnosis is depression/anxiety and it's being used as an augmentation to pristiq. Has anyone ever heard of such a high dose as a augmentation?
