Customer Question
What prescription med will bring...
What prescription med will bring my Joy Back? A year ago I took Lithium, Prolixin, and Zyprexa all together. It took me to an all time low, took away the true me, and I feel like a part of me died(the joy part) Zyprexa left me with uncrontrolled muscle movements that I still have from a year ago. And the Prolixin made me feel like I had to kill Myself so I banged my head into the Furniture when I took it a year ago. dont know if i have internal bleeding or braintrauma. and the Lithium, I guess it took my Joy away and left me to live in Fear. I dont know if it was the the lithium and Proxilin together that did or just the lithium. When I drink Wine, I can hardly feel the buzz, my tree essences don't work either . I have some Anger too. Please give me all the answers and information you can so i can heal this terrible case. I also suffer from negative thoughts. if you could tell what exactly happened to my brain/body give natural suggestions and prescription suggestions, that will truly be wonderful. to sum it it up I live in Fear, have 0 Joy, and have uncontrolled muscle movements, and negative thoughts.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
