Last night I had radio brain going on. That’s what I call it when theres random words inserted in my head. I’m also paranoid now because i found a deer tick on my dog and i keep thinking it’s a spy camera.
Are you just starting zyprexa?
Yes I’m starting it today. It’s being added to my seroquel
Ok. I hope it gives you some relief.
Gahh me too. It’s the worst having these thoughts and knowing its weird
Zyprexa might take some time to work. I’ve been on 10 milligrams for 23 years, I didn’t get better over night. It was a slow progression over a 5 year period.
If you see result stay with it long term.
Give it time, at least 6 weeks. By then you should have a good idea of what is working! Zyprexa has been very good for me. I’ve been stable for a long time on it and haven’t needed any adjustments in over a decade!
It cleared up my positive symptoms in a few weeks. Over the next 3 years my depression and anxiety reduced a lot. It does take some time to work.
You know these thoughts are weird. They are not you. You are not weird. Go from there and keep saying they are weird and not you when they happen. Put up a little defense of you self and don’t let them bother you. TRy a lot not t let them in. Separate them from you and you be ok over here and they be not ok over there> Sorry I tried, but it might give you some space.
I hope it helps. I’m looking for relief too. Hopefully I found out it’s all not real now that I started Abilify. It’s still real to me but everyone’s saying it’s not. So if that’s true, surely something should make it go away. Good luck to you!
It works for me. FYI it’s also prone to increasing your appetite. I gained a lot of weight from it. I am normally 130 lbs. and now up to 160 lbs. I drastically changed my diet after seeing myself in a full length mirror in one of Walmart’s fitting rooms. Now I eat no bread, and eat small portions or try to skip a meal if at all possible. The medicine still has me eating at night, sleep walking to the kitchen, normally grabbing cereal, leaving a mess in the kitchen or living room, and remembering none of it. The medicine made me extremely sleepy after taking it. When I was first put on it, I was given 5 mg. in the morning and 10 mg. at night. Some days I would sleep most of the day away, and still sleep well at night. Finally my doctor told me I could take 1 dose only at night and increased it to 15 mg. I’ve been on the medication since the middle of September 2018. It took a couple weeks for me to finally experience silence in my mind. Now I work a full time job as a server, constantly around other people; there was a time before I started Zyprexa where I was anxious in crowds, knowing the voices were listening and thinking they were watching my every move made me self conscious, my self esteem was completely shattered, and I felt awkward all the time. Today I don’t experience any of that. I feel more like I did before the voices started. Even though things have gotten better and the majority of my day the voices are quiet, I still hear them. I don’t mind hearing them. They have gotten much nicer and I guess I’ve gotten used to them. I will say a prayer for you tonight, I hope you get the best results possible!
good luck. I dunno why Zyprexa didn’t work for me. I took 40mg zyprexa and 12mg perphenazine and I was really unstable. I get voices saying random things like that sometimes, so random its irrelevant and I quickly forget
