Does Antipsychotics Instill an Intense Fear of Death in Anyone Else?

Recommended Posts

Although Zyprexa doesn't go quite as far as instilling the absolute terror Risperdal did, it still comes close. After not taking it for a few days I'm really starting to notice it, yesterday especially I was actually giddy at the thought of being brutally murdered, which is in such contrast with the terror the thought of dying causes me when I take Zyprexa.

Most antipsychotics work on alpha adrenergic receptors in some way and this can cause a lot of physical symptoms of anxiety and fear. It took me a while to tell the difference between genuine anxiety and a med just messing with my adrenaline receptors. It's really hard to tell the difference. I've heard that Latuda at the lower doses for some users instills a sense of panic combined with some akathisia which may feel like a panic attack.
