Zyprexa Alternatives

Zyprexa Alternatives

Many people desire more effective mental health treatments, or want to eliminate side effects, among other reasons for choosing to go with Zyprexa alternatives treatment. Alternative to Meds Center treatment provides side effect free and effective Zyprexa alternatives help for those who want to come off this medication and start living their life more fully!


When Zyprexa is initially prescribed and administered, there is no really way to tell beforehand how a patient will react and it is possible that this medication may not be sufficient enough to control a patients symptoms or effects may be too bothersome to continue treatment; leading many people to seek out alternatives to Zyprexa. In these situations, individuals should consult a doctor before reducing their dosage or discontinuing use of their medication. Healthcare providers may recommend Zyprexa substitutes such as therapy and other prescription medications, such as Haldol, also known as haloperidol.

Zyprexa, which is the brand name for Olanzapine, is licensed for use of treatment for schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, and it is also approved to treat depression when prescribed in combination with the antidepressant Prozac, AKA Fluoxetine. It is classified as an atypical (second-generation) antipsychotic, and for some people it is an effective medication for treating symptoms of the abovementioned mental conditions. However, there are many possible side effects associated with this medication and it may not be an adequate treatment for some individuals. This medication is also often prescribed when other drugs do not work, and when individuals with depression are non-responsive to anti-depression drugs; so for some people who use this medication, they are already taking it is an alternative to previous drug treatments.

When depressed individuals have tried many different drugs that don’t work, it can worsen depression and lead an individual to feel lost, wonder why the drug isn’t working and think that there is something wrong with them. There is nothing wrong with them. Prescription medications are not the only treatment for depression, schizophrenia, or bipolar disorder. When prescription drugs such as antipsychotics don’t work, it may be time to consider Zyprexa alternative therapies. There are many natural, healing and potentially effective alternatives for these mental disorders, and alternatives almost never have side effect risks. Zyprexa alternative therapies which have been effective for many, many people include: acupuncture, massage, chiropractic therapy, psychotherapy (talk therapy), psychosocial treatments (may be effective for schizophrenia treatment) exercise, dietary changes, nutritional therapy with necessary vitamins and supplements, and other lifestyle changes or healing therapies.

It may be unlikely for massage therapy alone to adequately replace the need for an antipsychotic in individuals with depression, schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. However, simple therapies such as massage can be one part of well-rounded Zyprexa alternatives help plan. When a well-structured treatment plan is created; natural alternatives to Zyprexa can be very effective, often much more effective than prescription drugs. An effective antipsychotic alternatives treatment plan may consist of counseling or psychotherapy once or twice a week, seeing an acupuncturist, massage therapist or chiropractor once a week; creating a healthy diet plan and eating nutritious foods; consuming any needed vitamins or supplements; exercising or being physically active for thirty minutes two to five times a week; creating and maintaining healthy relationships and a healthy environment, and avoiding things that are bad for you such as drugs, smoking cigarettes or drinking excessive amounts of alcohol.

Individuals seeking Zyprexa replacement options may consider consulting a doctor who practices Zyprexa holistic alternatives or complimentary medicine. Alternative and holistic doctors only prescribe drugs when absolutely necessary and after every other possible option has been tried. Complimentary doctors offer complimentary therapies such as massage or acupuncture in combination with prescription medications but work on a patient-to-patient basis and will recommend plenty of natural and potentially effective treatments if their patient is not interested in taking medication. These types of doctors can help create an adequate Zyprexa replacement treatment plan, monitor progresses, and help patients make any necessary changes.

The answer is different for each person as to why they are experiencing the symptoms that often lead to being prescribed this medication. However, there is often excessive amount of Dopamine. The neurochemical of reward is Dopamine, and an excess of it will cause everything to be too stimulating and can then result in manic episodes. This excess can be caused by the neurology being over-stimulated by neurotoxins, which can come from being exposed to toxins, or is often associated with a genetic issue. Or a diet that is lacking essential nutrients such as Niacin, B6 Vitamin C, and Zinc or low blood sugar and other food related issues can also result in psychotic episodes, particularly in sensitive individuals. Using an antipsychotic medication then causes Dopamine to be restricted, and the person is usually left being unable to enjoy life’s rewards.

Alternative to Meds Rehab Center uses the following techniques to successfully withdrawal from antipsychotic side effects. When we first lab test to ident  what the causes may be of the original symptoms, we usually find toxicity to be the problem.  Our treatment program aims to cleanse the person of environmentally accumulated neurotoxins, use natural substances to provide neurochemistry stability, and we employ IV amino acid therapies, targeted nutritional treatments, support from peers, yoga, massage, exercise, and many holistic therapies that can address any expected side effects. Once the individual feels relaxed and stable from these therapies, the drug can slowly be reduced.  We invite your call, so you can talk with us and find out an understanding of the sort of Zyprexa alternatives help that is available.
