Hi, I have been majorly unfunctioning depressed and major anxiety. My dr (not a specialist in this field)
Just put me on Symbryx which is a combo of zyprexa and prozac)  It says used for bipolar but I was wondering if anyone knows if uses for depression and anxiety without bipolar??? Thanks Nia

I am Kitt.  I know Zyprexa is used for Bipolar and has been around since about 1996. I do not know of this combination drug but perhaps someone else will.

I was seeing a general practioner who wrote my depression RX's and I landed in the hospital once as he put me on wrong dose of a med.  From then on he had me see P-doc for all RX meds.

Do you have access to psychiatrist as their speciality is the different meds and combos?

Remember I am not an expert and the med may be just fine but if you have questions look to the experts for thier advice.

I was on symbyax for 2 years and LOVED it.. however i didn't know that the prozac part was sending me into manic episodes. And the zyprexa can cause diabetes, so they took me off of it. Sad times, cause here lately my new meds suck :(
