Hi Jonny, I was on Prozac years ago for a few days.  Didnt do very well with it however, I dont discourage anyone from taking it as it is an effective treatment for depression.  I am sure you do know that Zyprexa is an antipsychotic medication but its uses are many.

Your welcome to poll the members here about their experiances regarding these medications but please do keep in mind that everyone reacts to them very differently.  Please let us know how things go, take care.

I too was on prozac and after about a year I contacted my doctor because I felt that I was walking around like a zombie. That could have just been the dosage that they gave me I am not sure.

Just remember what Elisha said about everyone reacting differently. And also keep in mind that if it does not work for you just contact your Dr and let them know.
