  1. Hey aero, How is your symptoms now regrading memory, brain fog, anhedonia and sexual side effects? I used lexapro just like you but unfortunately I used zyprexa too. Paxil as well 10 years ago. Your experience is helpful Thanks aero
  2. How long you have been on zyprexa ? I've been on it 3 months last year and I don't feel like my usual self. Brain fog, memory loss, concentrating and thinking issues as well as depression and not feeling good emotions. Has anyone recover from this? Thanks
  3. I was on stelazine only when forced drugged in a mental hospital in my teens. Interestingly, I dont recall them ever giving me an Rx cor when I was discharged... I always believed it was more of a chemical restraint for us wild and crazy teenagers. :/ I would not have recalled any WD symptoms, but I had dystonia from taking it and was given cogentin, I believe. Or artane? this was in the 70s, mind you, a long time ago I was forced to take Haldol for many months while impatient in a state hospital- never took it outside the hospital. Got akathesia from haldol when they changed my dose
  4. I'm taking zyprexa, which is an anti-psychotic. I've read here from a member that they cause brain damage - shrinking part of the brain & are considered a chemical lobotomy.

You write that you took 1/4 a pill every other day. I wonder if that affected you somehow? Did you feel different the days when you took the pill compared to the days when you didn't?
  6. Well, I stopped Zyprexa in 2012 and I consider myself completely recovered. But it was an 8 mo taper, not CT. If you are struggling I would really recommend reinstatement and a proper taper. 3 yrs before that a dr. tried me on 50% reductions and it was impossible.
  7. Whatever you quit all this in 2002 10 years of healing from your quit time to when you wrote this. You obviously consider yourself healed when you wrote this. I am amazed at your clarity and strength. Congratulations. I am amazed how well you and quickly you healed I do suspect perhaps it is like child birth and the pain of it dims in time (just a thought) . I am curious if in some way some of the drugs were protective in keeping the damage from other drugs lower... I know it sounds silly coming from me. I like to know things sometimes and am curious about this. I will not say I know wh
