Did your ap make you more passive in the beginning?

So soon it will be one month that I am on a proper dosage of Zyprexa. Maybe I really need bigger dosages at the end. I sad screw to my hypersensibility to meds and I upped my Zyprexa on 10 mg. But today it made me really passive for some brief moment. I also have my grief still in my soul… I am grieving but it comes and it goes… So maybe I need patience…
I wanted to see one friend of my mom, but I was paranoid. So ill spend once again the time at home, just cleaning some stuff here etc…Were you passive in the beginning of your treatment? It made me feel also a bit ‘‘soulless’’ if I can say. But sometimes I prefer this to my usual soul pain…

All the ap’s make me passive, sometimes in a good way, and sometimes in a bad way. When I was on Zyprexa I wanted to sleep a lot. Sometimes I miss those days, when I could sleep so much. I was always mildly depressed while I was on Zyprexa. Haldol completely removed my soul, but I have since gotten it back. Haldol turned me into a living, breathing, puddle of nothing. I hated it.


When I first started on AP’s, I was a total zombie for years until my brain got used to the medications. I was on the old medication perphenazine at first. Didn’t do me a bit of good.

Certain ones did. Others have made me more aggressive.
