After trying many ssri's for terrible anxiety (and nausea), I was just prescribed 5 mg zyprexa (normally given for bipolar). I took my first dose last night and ended up sleeping for over 10 hours. Now I am extremely groggy. My heart is still racing a bit but I am not feeling particularly anxious. The usual daily nausea is gone as well. I wondered if anyone has had a good experience with this drug for anxiety.
As an anxiety disorder sufferer, Zyprexa(Olanzapine) was not helpful to mange my uncontrolled anxiety. In addition to the loss of libido, the medication would make me so sleepy. I was even beginning to fall asleep in company meetings, or possibly driving home, so I quit that medicine within a few days. Do note Zyprexa is a antipsychotic meant for people with Bipolar disorder and schizophrenia For me I'm not bipolar, but why the psychiatrist paired me with a bipolar medication is beyond me. I guess antipsyycotics have faster results with calming our minds down, but I think it's the wrong med to give an anxiety disorder sufferer.
Yesterday on the Intro forum, you wrote you were on Vibrybd for just a few weeks. Stay on Vibryd. Also it's a good idea that you give these antidepressants a chance. Sometimes you'll have to wait up to twelve weeks to get the benefit of the med.
Also if you have a history of starting and stopping antidepressant know this causes a harmful reaction to your brain chemistry, where the antidepressants don't have the same initial effect, when you try them again at a second, third or fourth time, etc as when you first tried them.
