Im sorta new here (been posting on lupus forum) I have lupus /thyroid and its under control with meds but I have been having alot of lupus pains and doc and I agreed to not only physical pains but depression also I have tried elavil 10mg ( was fair but so sedated onit) then we tried cymbalta and I  got a severe allergic reaction that required alot of benadryl shots, then we tried symybyax which is a combo of fluoxetine/olazapine and I got a allergic reaction (hives etc. ) to that too I see him this week he told me to stop it (symbyax) and see whats up this week, my question is have any of you taken the olanzapine by itself for like depr/ anxiety and pains?? I know none of you are docs but talking to someone who is either on it or not it may help.  I hope this makes sense?!  So doc and and I are not sure if Im allergic to just the olanzapine or the fluoxetine in the symbyax .  Please respond as Im all new to any type of depression/anticonvulsant type meds.

I have taken zyprexa for mania, but nothing else (some docs use it for anxiety or as a mood stbilizer). It definetly calm me down, a little too much. I have not taken prozac or symbyax before, I wish I can give you more info, but I can't. I hope your meds get worked out soon.
