Did anyone else find Zyprexa activating?


Recommended Posts

Was it Zyprexa or your illness? How much are you taking?

Z gave me akathesia, so sitting still was a struggle. Thankfully, I was off it pretty quick. The 15mg did put the breaks on a little, though.

I was taking 7.5mg for my schizophrenia (possibly schizo-affective). Wasn't expericing other symptoms of mania though other than increased energy when I was on it so not sure if it was a symptom of the med or the illness.

I find it slightly activating. I don't mean that in an akathisia-sense, but in the fact that it clears the horror-movie in my mind out sufficiently so that I can get things done in an orderly fashion like wash dishes and keep my little apartment clean.

As a note, I don't get akathisia on Zyprexa until 30mg/day. It is fascinating how some of us get it at different doses!
