Hello Zappy,

I am Kitt. First of all can you tell me why your Dr. is wanting you to take Zyprexa?

If you do not want to take a drug that has serious side effects than I would like to see you talk with your Dr. for an alternative choice.

I refused a number of drugs for depression as I read the side effects and decided I did not want to go there.  Remember you have patient's rights so establish a good relationship with your physician and if you cannot do that..........look for a new physician.  This is just my own opinion. yeah

Keep posting.

its a newish so called atypical antipsychotic thats being heavily promoted as a magic cure for almost everything

might be worth trying but only if existing meds arent working, IMO

doc might be doing a paid trial for the makers, if he insists......

paxil
and some others i cant rmemeber and they ALL gave me sexual side effects (cant orgasm) and i dont want that.

some of them made me crazy to and really bad ocd like washing my hands all the time when i touch a cup or anything.

reaqlly your desire to
get better should make sexual problems unimportant but the zyprexa is safe to try and may help with anxiety
