Hi there, I mentioned what those depression meds can do to sleep on the depression board regarding your post there. But yes, zyprexa can cause some dependancy, actually, most prescription drugs for sleep can and discontinuing them causes rebound insomnia. But your AD meds are likely causing overstimulation as well so sleep is near impossible.
