Hello everyone. I am new to the Healing Well board,so this is my first post here at all
I have been suffering from a severe depression for over a year now. I've never had such a long period of being "in the pit" before. The GP Dr I'm seeing has tried me on Paxil, Zoloft,
Prozac,and several others I can't recall the name of. Now I'm taking Effezor XR.
The Dr added an anti-psychotic drug called Zyprexa to the Effexor. My diagnosis has always been Depression and Anxiety. I don't have Sz or Bipolar, so why did the Dr give me an antipsychotic drug? When I found out what it was, and read about the serious side effects, I am afraid of this Zyprexa drug.
I have to take it at night because it makes me sleepy.
Anyone here familiar with Zyprexa?
If so, please talk to me, okay>
