I've been taking 2.5 mg of zyprexa for about 12 years for anxiety, along with Nardil for depression& some things for sleep, etc. Every time I try to get off the zyprexa I get the same wierd physical symptoms, in addition to regular anxiety symptoms that I can recognize. This time I took 3/4 of the 2.5mg for 1 week, and went down to 1/2 for a week, and then dropped it. As in previous times of trying to go off it, I've gotten a weird feeling in my ears (a tiny bit of pain, but maybe a feeling of pressure inside or something like that; sometimes what seems to be a light ringing), and my gums (my mouth) itch, and maybe even some cut skin inside my mouth. This time round, I also feel like a have a sore throat. This all started right when I went off the zyprexa. (This time round my eyes are also hurting me and bothering me. I got new glasses about the same time, but the eyedoctor says they're fine.) COULD THESE ALL JUST BE ANXIETY SYMPTOMS OR COULD IT BE THAT SOMETHING PHYSICAL IS GOING ON BECAUSE MY BODY WAS USED TO THE ZYPREXA FOR SO LONG? HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF THOSE SYMPTOMS????????? WILL THEY GO AWAY? HOW LONG COULD IT TAKE? SHOULD I WAIT IT OUT & SEE WHAT HAPPENS? My doctor says there is no such thing a zyprexa withdrawal. Also, I've been checked out by my primary care physician. He says my ears are fine; the only thing is my throat looked a little irritated. Said it could be allergy-BUT WHY WOULD THAT ALLERGY SYMPTOM START EXACTLY WHEN I GO OFF THE ZYPREXA?
