I was wondering how effective zyprexa is for anxiety. I am not using it for its intended purpose (I take 160 mg of Geodon for psychosis, and I take 900 mg of Lithium for mood). I do not find ocd anxiety relief from benzo's like klonopin or Ativan. And I CANNOT take AD's because even the tinniest dose throws me into a manic episode. So my pdoc and I agreed to try me on a super low dose of zyprexa to see if I find relief. I have been imprisoned by this OCD anxiety. The negative thoughts, intrusive thoughts, compulsions, the tics, the pacing....all a result of extreme anxiety. She wrote the prescription for 1/2 of a 2.5 mg pill twice daily = 2.5 mg total in a day She wants to first try out just 1/2 in the morning...and if that doesn't help enough then take the other half that evening. = 1.25 mg in a day Does Zyprexa help your anxiety...and if you have ocd, does it help with the obsessions/compulsions?
