@Here4You I’m sorry you can’t come down on your doses. I know how it feels to be an antipsychotic zombie after five years on Haldol 30 mg.
@alien99 I’m sorry you had such a bad experience on Zyprexa! So far it’s been a blessing for me. No voices even though I’m coming down off my Haldol. I haven’t had a single panic attack since starting Zyprexa, which is HUGE for me. And it’s absolutely killing my appetite, I have to force myself to eat, so I can easily stay within the 1200 calorie range and hopefully lose my Geodon weight.
The only negative so far is wicked insomnia. The first two nights, I had to take two klonopin at 2 a.m. to finally get some sleep (I’m allowed three klonopin a day). Last night, I got zero sleep. I am making a commitment to get up at 8:15 a.m. every day to get the Zyprexa into my system way before bedtime. I can always go back to bed if I want once the morning meds are taken. I was expecting sedation like Here4You is experiencing, but I’m getting the total opposite. I don’t want to ask for a sleep med just yet, I’m hoping it’ll even out over time. This is only Day 4 so I have plenty of time to adjust, and I’m not even on 10 mg yet.
