    Right now I'm on Zoloft and Zyprexa/olanzapine.

    It's for ....well I'm not even sure what it is, some kind of psychotic episode from using amphetamines.

    Forgot to mention, they don't prescribe lithium here, last time i went the guy sugested some others to me. I though the anti-psychotics would take care of it but it's only taken care of some of the symptoms like the anti-depressants.

    I still have racing thoughts, euphoric feelings followed by crashes and so on.

    zyprexa.. bleh. it's an antipsychotic, whatever that means, but it's used as a anti-mania mood stabilizer as well.

    it works and does the job but all I did was sleep and eat on it. Plus it's been found to cause diabeties and is currently the subject of several lawsuits on that.

    I'm pretty lucky that way, I don't get the hunger or tiredness but it's not doing much for the mania.
