Anyway, I was just prescribed Zyprexa on Wednesday. I have major depressive disorder, and high anxiety, bordering on OCD. I've been on Prozac for the last 3 months, but it hasn't really affected me. So, instead of changing my meds, my doc prescribed Zyprexa in order to enhance the effects of the Prozac. I'm not manic at all, so I don't see why I would need an antipsychotic, but I'll give it a shot.
I'm on 2.5 mg, to be taken at night. So far, the only effect I've noticed is that it makes me sleep a lot. I slept for 10 hours on Wednesday night, and then took a 3 hours nap not 3 hours after I woke up. Figured I'd be up all night..but fell asleep an hour after taking the Zyprexa. I'm actually looking forward to possible weight gain- my anxiety and depression has caused me to lose about 10 pounds in the last 5 months, and I'm thinner than I'd like to be. I'm a bit worried about the diabetes risk, since I have hypoglycemia. But for now, i just want to be able to leave my room and feel happy again.
Just thought I'd introduce myself!
