Advice & Tips: I have been on Zyprexa for over four years and I no longer feel like; others could hear my thoughts (broadcasting), that I could hear other people thoughts (mind reading), that I could communicate by thought with others without speaking a word (telepathic communication), not only could I communicate with other people in this way but I could communicate with other things as if they had human like qualities (anthropomorphic telepathic communication), believing that I am super important to the world (grandiose thinking), that others were out to kill me (paranoia), and being very delusional. But, before Zyprexa I did believe in these things (powers) were true for me, but now I do not. Also, for over 35 years (1977 - 2013) I believed that God would talk to me personally and would give me personal instructions, but now, after starting Zyprexa on Dec 13, 2012, I no longer believe this is/was probably ever true. Zyprexa, work better with less side effects., than those in 1977 when I started taking antipsychotic medications. I may have gotten the side effect of an internal restlessness that makes you want to move, akathista, from those earlier antipsychotic medications and not from Zyprexa.

Advice & Tips: I did not believe this medication would change anything for me, but it did. It works even though I did not believe it would. I use to feel my psychotic symptoms were truly real, but after being on Zyprexa for awhile, I now believe they are not and never were truly real. The side effect of internal restlessness (akathisia) is bad.

Advice & Tips: The anti-obsessional aspect of Zyprexa is helping to restrict my food intake. I had been scared to try it because it seems people like to declare it a prescription for ridiculous hunger. Due to my history of severe anorexia nervosa, my psychiatrist swore that I would not allow myself to gain weight on Zyprexa. His worst fear has happened-- without obsessions, I have used it to lose more weight. (As an anorexic, I love the feeling of hunger.) Zyprexa isn't a pill to automatically disdain if you have an eating disorder. Though my psychiatrist will probably yank the prescription soon, so far I like it. It has improved my moods, helped regulate sleeping patterns, and... it's wrong, but, i can calmly hold on to the feeling of hunger for an extended periods of time.
