Zyprexa Withdrawal

Zyprexa Withdrawal

Users of this psychiatric drug who run into Zyprexa withdrawal symptoms can face one of the most difficult of any medication withdrawal process. Alternative to Meds Center addiction treatment program has developed effective Zyprexa withdrawal help techniques to provide relief from withdrawal complications and simplify this occurrence. 


Antipsychotic withdrawal is a major side effect of this drug that can inevitably occur upon discontinuation of its use. There are comfortable ways of coming off Zyprexa and there are uncomfortable ways. For example, bad ways to withdrawal include: quitting Zyprexa “cold turkey”, withdrawing by one’s self without any support, and generally not having the proper environment or knowledge to withdrawal from an antipsychotic drug in a comfortable manor. Good ways to withdrawal from this drug include: having a structured plan for alternative treatment, cleansing the body in a rehab center with Zyprexa withdrawal treatment, and very slowly weaning this drug out of the system to avoid acute withdrawal. Having a plan for alternative treatment is a very important part of successful, safe and comfortable withdrawal

This medication does not cure mental disorders or symptoms, it may cover them up while the drug is in your system but once it is out of your system; all of the symptoms of underlying mental conditions will return. Abrupt withdrawal from Zyprexa from this drug will reemerge symptoms in a worsened state. Another very important aspect of withdrawal is properly removing it from your body. Slowly getting it out of your system by reducing your dosage a little bit every few days or every week will allow the body and mind to adjust properly and withdrawal symptoms will be lessened. Tardive dyskinesia is one of the concerning symptoms that is possible to occur during this withdrawal. Tardive dyskinesia is a movement disorder that causes involuntary movements and trouble with controlling limbs, and only appears during or after antipsychotic withdrawal. This is one obvious reason why it is so important to have Zyprexa withdrawal treatment in order to manage this experience in the safest and most effective way possible.

The most important aspect of antipsychotic withdrawal is having the right support, Zyprexa discontinuation is no joke, and it is something to take seriously; the best setting to withdrawal from this drug is in a rehab that is capable of offering treatment for prescription drug withdrawal. Withdrawing alone at home without Zyprexa withdrawal help often leads back to use of the drug because of the unbearable withdrawal symptoms. The symptoms are not hard to deal with when the right resources are available, while withdrawing from an antipsychotic there are many healing activities that will not only feel good but will also aid in the process of withdrawing this drug from the body. Swimming, yoga, and other forms of exercise such as walking are excellent activities as they will produce endorphins (the body’s natural pain relievers) and build confidence.

In rehab, talk therapy is one of the activities that patients participate in and it makes a huge difference. Whether you are doing a rehab program or not, counseling may be one of the most helpful activities during withdrawal. In talk therapy, you can discover how to deal with mood swings and mental triggers without antipsychotic drugs, you can talk about how antipsychotic withdrawal makes you feel (emotionally, mentally, physically, spiritually), and learn the tools you will need to handle mental issues in a healthy way. Some of the Zyprexa withdrawal effects include: insomnia, resurgence of underlying mental problems and symptoms, loss of appetite, dizziness, hot or cold flashes, abnormal sweating, anxiety, depression, feeling suicidal, hallucinations, strange behavior, loss of energy, and tardive dyskinesia.

These symptoms of withdrawal occur because antipsychotic drug use causes excitatory Dopamine to be restricted, and alters the brain in the synapse. Dopamine is what arouses the original nerve’s impulse to the receptors of the next nerve, and the synapse is the location in the brain where one nerve can talk to another nerve. When the drug is causing Dopamine to be low, the neurology is altered and creates more Dopamine receptors. Then when a person stops taking the drug, additional Dopamine is available to be released, but now it is impacting excessive Dopamine receptors. If the person has been drinking coffee, eating sugary foods or smoking cigarettes for stimulation while they were taking the drug, these things may be added to the effect of withdrawal.

Our withdrawal help techniques include the following methods to successfully alleviate withdrawal when quitting Zyprexa. We first lab test to see what may have been the cause of the originating issues, often finding toxicity as the problem, so we work on clearing the person out. Our program is focused on use of natural substances for stabilization of neurochemistry, cleansing of environmentally accumulated neurotoxins, targeted nutrition therapy, IV amino treatment, peer support, personal training, yoga, massage therapy and several other therapies to combat expected symptoms of withdrawal when stopping Zyprexa. We encourage you to call us and talk, so you can receive an idea about the sort of Zyprexa withdrawal help available.
