Lithium. Zyprexa. Clonazepam. HELP?


Recommended Posts

When i was hospitalized at age 18 for one month, the thing that made my delusions and auditory hallucinations fade was zyprexa.

None of the doctors were sure what was wrong with me, my mother was convinced it was schitzophrenia.

In fact, i once believed (THOROUGHLY) that i could control the weather, AND electricity.

Back on topic here, Zyprexa and clonazepam really controlled my outbursts.

RAGE. HYSTERIA. GIGGLING FITS. THINKING I WAS ON A DIFFERENT PLANE OF EXISTANCE.

BUT...it stole my soul. Everyone told me my eyes were dead. It made me cry.

When i was released, my psychiatrist took me off the clonazepam right away.

Left me on the zyprexa, and added lithium.

They said they didnt understand why i was not on a mood stablilizer, if i was diagnosed with Bi-Polar disorder.

A period of deep depression followed. In which i decided (idiotically) to go off my meds completely. I have been much MUCH happier, Obviously.

But i feel i am in a mixed state. My mum has me taking vitamins, which help me concentrate, but how far can that go, since i concentrate alot more heavily on the negative things that i catch myself doing.

So my real questions are, Lithium......side effects...long term effects...etc

Zyprexa....any stories?

and

What is a good anti anxiety med? Even though i dont feel i need to take a buttload of medication anymore.

TY for reading.
