    Scared of Zyprexa

    I'm suffering of GENERALIZED ANXIETY DISORDER since 18 years and i was able to handle pretty well when i was covered with CITALOPRAM or CYMBALTA i would say very close to full remission.

    A month ago i was without medication and i had a very strong anxiety so i was back with Cymbalta 60mg and you know the first days are the hardest plus i had also a huge stress in my family didn't help.

    My Hunt suffering of the same disease brought me to her neurologist and he added Lyrica 300mg and Zyprexa 5mg and after a week he raised to 7.5mg.

    I feel DULL with ZYPREXA i'm really worried this medication can damage my brain wich is already damaged and i don't want additional damage.
    I read chronic olanzapine can shrink brain in a study in other study could be neuroprotective
    plus is associated with obesity and diabetes.
    I'm 7 days on this shit do you think i should go back with my original psychiatrist didn't prescribed neuroleptics for anxiety?

    Welcome to No More Panic, Eddy

    A month ago i was without medication and i had a very strong anxiety so i was back with Cymbalta 60mg and you know the first days are the hardest plus i had also a huge stress in my family didn't help.
    Starting at 30mg for the first week would have made it easier. I believe some generics make 20mg pills which would be an even better starting dose.

    7.5 mg is not a bad dose, the 300pregabalin is pretty fast in 7 days
