my docotor perscribed it for me . i am very depressed and have anxiety. i am one xanax . it does not help. i am taking the max dose of celexa . i have been on the celexa for ove 10 years now. i am on the max dose now, i have no motivation, i am also on vicodin which i am wantin gto get of of. i want off my meds. but the doctor told me not go off of them all at the same time,. she is trying to get me calmed down so i can off taper off the vicodin and xanax. now i hear bad things about zyprexa. i can get past the weight gain, but not the sleepiness it can cause. i am afraid to take it. i know it is an antisycotic drug or how ever it is spelled. i am just thinking about throwing out all of my pills and living with this anxiety and depression. i guess the new thing now is take this drug if an antidepressant does not work. i can hear it makes you a zombie. is all this true? has anyone had good luck with this drug? i have had depresision for most of my life. and i hate it. i hate taking pills ,too. but i guess if i get some good feedback i will try it. i am not bipolar and i do not have mania. just plain old anxiety and depression! and it *****! sorry i am ranting ,but i am at the end of my rope. any good input will help, now about the sleepiness, i have never been a good sleeper. i take so many pills to get to sleep at night and i might sleep for 4 good hours. i am never tired, just wired! i do not want to become a zombie taking another pill. i can cut the xanax out , it does nothing for me. and the vicodin makes me crazy. the clelexa does not work anymore . i have NO insurance so i cannot go on the more expensive pills. i am going to try to take the zyprexa tomorrow night since i do not have to work the next day. any input will be helpful and i am sorry i am raniting but that is where i am at right now CRAZY!!! thank you in advance. any input will be welcomed. i would truly appreciate it.
