I saw my Pdoc, told him of the anger/rage episodes, and the feeling 'out of it' when I was on Remeron. I also told him the Celexa a was on previously was effective to some extent in relieving depressive sxs. He put me back on Celexa but upped the dose to 40 (I was on 20 previously), and gave me 2.5mg of Zyprexa.
I looked Zyprexa up and saw that its label use is for Bipolar d. or Schizophrenia. Off-label I saw it could be used for Tx Resistant
Has anybody used Zyprexa? I'll probably post in the Bipolar Forum as well.
Cross your fingers everyone! I'm taking this med on a 2 week spin before my next appointment!

Hi Eli,

I am taking abilify with my antidepressant effexor. The abilify is also for psychotic and bi-polar. And it helps tremendously. I am not clasified as either. But ever since they added the abilify, I have been feeling a lot better.

I hope that the medications work for you.

Hugs, Karen
