I have already been on risperdal. abilify and now zyrexa. My delustions just won't go away. I have schizoaffective disorder, bipolar subtype. I just don't know what my psychiatrist is going to try next when I tell him zyprexa has not gotten rid of my delusion. Does anyone have comments on getting rid of delusions.View Thread
I used Abilify for a few months but I had too much anxiety from it. I switched to zyprexa and still had anxiety issues. I switched to clozaril and could not tolerate it all. Seroquel did not work well for me. Finally I ended up on Saphris 10mg 2X daily which is working very well for me. Saphris is sort of new on the market but it is getting more and more attention because the side effect profile is really better than the others. The only problem is the cost of Saphrs, about $732 pre month for 60 tablets.
I started out with schizoaffective disorder but I got upgraded to paranoid schizophrenia later on!View Thread
My psych just told me how to wean off zpyrexa - 10mg for 5 days and 5mg for 10 days. He will evaluate my then to determine the need to start a new antipsychotic. I have been on meds for over one year. My diagnosis is schizoaffective disorder, bipolar type. I hope to stay the meds for a while to see how I am.View Thread
It sounds like there is a mood disorder present. Might not be bipolar but it still could be in the mood disorder category. Lithium really helps me and it is easy to take and adjust to. I take paxil, lithium. I also take zyprexa since my diagnosis is schizoaffective disorder, bipolar type.View Thread
