trg247?

Still getting the thoughts and depressive episodes. I was only taking 10mg of zyprexa. Now doc wants me to go to 15mg for a few days and then go up to 20mg. What do you think. I still think the med is giving some of these feelings and thoughts, but the doc says it isnt giving me these feelings and thoughts. Did you syart out at 20mg or did you go up a little at a time? I just get an urge feeling and the negative thought to just do something to myself. Is that how you get the urges? Thanks man.

Re: trg247?

I started at 15mg and then went to 20mg a month later. I have a deep sinking feeling then a depressive episode begins. The urges usually begins with my hands shaking then the urge to hurt myself goes through my brain and will not go away until I am able to overcome it or do something about it.

take care

Re: trg247?

Do you think the meds are causing any of the bad episodes? Just leary of the meds i guess. Just need some advise from someone like you on the meds. I dont feel bad all the time, just get episodes and then an erry feeling like do something to myself. I almost feel like a high from the med sometimes then an episode will come in. Any advise about the med?

Re: trg247?

I don't think it is the med to blame actually I think the med is helping you and as the dosage increases the less episodes you will have. I don't have a simple depression, not saying that you do, but I am not the best person to judge against as I take five other prescriptions on top of Zyprexa.

Re: trg247?

Do you ever get just simple phrases like kill or suicide go thru your head. Sometimes I dont have to bad emotional feelings but i will get the phrases run thru my head. Do you think the med is helping me? I think i will go up on the dosage to 20mg. Or should i wait a few days at 15mg? If it was the med i guess i would be in a awful shape. Merry Christmas to you. So once again you dont think the med would cause depressive episodes and thoughts right?

Re: trg247?

I get the suicide one alot it will come out of nowhere and it does not matter how I am feeling or what kind of day it has been. Zyprexa is pretty fast acting so I would wait in between dose changes. No I think the med is helping you not hurting you. Merry Christmas to you too

Re: trg247?

Do you ever get that low depressive feeling that makes you just want to set down. I still am getting episodes despite the med, do you still get depressed? I am still having episodes.

Re: trg247?

I think the depression part is due to the antidepressants you take and not the Zyprexa. I still get overly depressed at times and on a day to day basis I am depressed at some level that has never waivered no matter what drugs I am taking.

Re: trg247?

I only take zyprexa. I only had one spell today, but i may have several the next day. I dont stay depressed all the time but when it hits i get the bad urges. are your urges like you could just go hurt yourself. The urges are the worst. What do you do when you get the urges?

Re: trg247?

Maybe its time to talk to your doctor about taking an antidepressant to cut down on the depressive episodes. My arms are covered by multiple scars that came through as an urge that I could not control

Re: trg247?

You just handle them. I either talk myself through them or I leave the situation. I just handle them there is no easy answer or way in how to handle the urges

Re: trg247?

Do you ever wake up with depression. I wake up just feeling like just laying there. I wonder if the med is causing some of the bad feelings. My doctor says no. I just dont understand feeling good one day then having the bad feelings the next? Do you have bad thoughts and feelings everyday?

Re: trg247?

I wake up feeling depressed the majority of the time. Somedays it just goes away where the others. I take Effexor, Remeron and Wellbutrin for antidepressants and even with those I am still plague with depressive episodes. I just have to hope that one day I will wake up and the depression will have lifted on its own. Zyprexa is for psycotic episodes, urges and thoughts it is not really meant to handle pure depression on its own.

Re: trg247?

Thanks. You dont think the med would cause some depression. Do you think the med could be causing some thoughts. Do you get the suicidal thoughts everyday? I seem to get them each day. Wonder if going up to 20mg. will help? My doc says that the med is not the cause>
