Can a zyprexa increase of 10 mg work fast for reducing manic symptoms? As in starting to help in days even? Or does it take longer to see even a tiny bit of improvement?

I was taking 20 mg and now I’m at 30 mg total (15 mg twice daily). This will be my third day of the increase.

I think this dose increase is what I needed all along, you guys. I was so bad about taking the PRN consistently. I never took more than one PRN pill a day (25 mg total daily) and I confess I took it like once per week, if that. I kept forgetting or didn’t want to take it. Bad, I know. I’m sorry.

I think part of the point of Zyprexa is that it works fast. Do you feel better?

Thanks gear. I just didn’t really know what to expect. It’s been so long since I started taking it daily instead of a PRN only.

I do wonder if I’m starting to feel a very tiny bit improved.

Yes Zyprexa is one of the faster acting meds.

Thank you! Very good to know and hear. I didn’t know if I was crazy to think I could be very slightly improving so fast. Not out of the water yet though.
