supersensitivity psychosis :
When I first figured out my "anxiety" pill zyprexa was taking away All my Motivation 100% of my ability to enjoy anything I had to stop taking it. Thank got the Rx ran out.

First the anxiety and insomnia begins followed by a rebound of that extra hunger turning to nausia. Then comes the panic and vomit attacks every day out my back door. Pace back and forth in the house hoping for relife. Try and eat its been days anxiety and panic at attacks vomit on the back steps day after day the insomnia gets worse losing your mind. Days and days very little sleep psychosis sets in.
Then the ER and hospital bills why can't I keep food down ? They don't know, Its all in your head.
Then they get upset when you show up again and don't want to take pschiatric poisons for a problem you didn't have before you took psychiatric poisons !

Akathesia - Try the website "Beyond Meds" - where a lot of people go to get help when they are trying to withdraw from horrible psych. drugs. Many people are in your same boat, and the "profession" of psychiatry is no help at all. They don't even acknowledge the problem, much less help people deal with it.

Many of these horrible medical symptoms and conditions can be cured just by receiving a nice "Big Check" from the pharmaceutical company.

I took Klonopin and Paxil for 15 years to treat my anxiety disorder. I had to detox from the Klonopin this past spring. I got off the Klonopin and switched my Paxil to Lexapro (sex side effect issue). I am also a recovering alcoholic. My doctor did not want me on Benzo's anymore (says it increased alcohol cravings). I stayed on Lexapro only for 9 months, but my anxiety came back strong on just the Lexapro alone. I almost resorted to taking Xanax before I switched doctors. My new doc gave Zyprexa from a chance. I am on my 7th day and I haven't felt this "normal" in 5 years. I take 5mgs at night and it has ended the "chatter" in my head, and removed my anxiety. Great medicine so far.

Naturally, I am skeptical of everything online. is legitimate. I placed my first order for the smallest amount possible. It arrived sooner than expected. I didn't pay the extra money for speedy air mail. I placed another order that was much larger and it came right on time. I will definitely use this company again for even larger orders now that I trust them. They also give you discounts every time you place an order which is cool. One thing to keep in mind is if you place a larger order, they will send half in one shipment, and then the other half after that to avoid customs scrutinizing your package. I am very happy, I no longer need to pay tons of money to see a doctor and therapist (and have them tell me a bunch of stuff I already know) in order to get my medication.
