I have had to take extra Zyprexa recently. And because I was breaking down and taking it during the day- the hunger was incredible. I thought I would pass out from hunger at work. I wanted to eat everything I could get my hands on- my lunch, food that patients had brought in, all of the chocolate covered almonds in my purse and an energy bar.
So last night I just took more at night. I hope that will avert taking it during the day. And hopefully the hunger won't be so bad taking it all at night.
My psychiatrist raised my thyroid hormone slightly. I don't know if that is doing to do the job. The one thing I wonder about is switching from Zyprexa to Seroquel XR. I was on Seroquel at one time, but the short half-life was an issue. I wonder if the XR version will be too sedating during the day. Or, alternately- because it has a shorter half-life than Zyprexa, if it will wear out by the end of the day. I don't know which is better for depression, Zyprexa or Seroquel, although that probably depends upon the individual.
This depression has to go.
