My pdoc put me on Invega 9mg to stop hallucinations. But put in Zyprexa Zydis 5mg to control delusions. Does this seem like overkill to you? He also upped my lamictal to 250mg. I should say that I was on Zyprexa Zydis 10 mg before, but had to stop because I was too damn lethargic on it.

If this cocktail doesn't work, it's clozapine time for me. And I'm scared.

Please, input needed.

Thanks.

If you are moving on to clozapine next, I say give this one a try. Invega is new, it's a bit hard to know how you will react, but it may be very helpful.

I take two AAPs at the moment and I NEED them. It's okay to be on two if you have to....

I'd rather take my quel/risperdal combination that clozapine, just due to the PITA of monitoring and whatnot.

Give it a chance, I'd say.

I remember that not long ago you were talking about being depressed. Did your pdoc give you something for the depression? Or do you think that the Zyprexa Zydis was too high and making you depressed?

The important thing is how you are feeling on this combo.

My pdoc gave me zyprexa + prozac for the depression, and that caused all kinds of weirdness, but the depression lifted somehow, although it left me with unbearable lethargy, which was why the combo had to go. So Invega took its place. But then, the delusions came raging back, and so Zyprexa is back in the picture.

I was just wondering if this is overkill, dopamine-wise. I know that both drugs are potent.

      I talked to him the other day and he said if I'm feeling unsafe he wou;d like me to go into the day program to get my meds switched up and all, because he doesn't want to do a big change on an OP basis, I get that. But I'm wondering, is it because I am maxed out on on Wellbutrin and Lamictal? Seroquel could go higher, but I guess not on the doses of the other meds? I am sort of wondering if I backed down on the Wellbutrin (which was talked about earlier), would there be more room to fiddle with the Seroquel? I know you guys aren't docs, but anyone have experience with this?
       
      Actually I just realized the Wellbutrin XL does go up to 450, but maybe he is worried about seizures?
