Greetings.
Welcome to the site.
I am a Psychiatrist and I believe that I can help you with your query.
Please kindly answer a few queries.
1) Did your doctor abruptly stop your zyprexa ? Why did he stop this drug in the First place ? Why were you on it ? What is your diagnosis ?
2) Are there any other drugs that you are currently taking ? If yes please mention them and their doses ?
Are you still taking benzatropine ? At what dose ?
Regards

My doctor. Took me off zyprexa then after that my nose started to wiggle. Then I was put on benztropine for about a week then they took me off benztropine. Then my nose started to wiggle again. I have tried benadryl lorazepam. Nothing helped they put me on benztropine again and it would not stop the wiggle. I started to massage on both sides of my nose. It is maybe so far stopped the wiggle. Is the problem aniexty or side effect from zyprexa. I have bipolar disorder. What does it tell you about massaging has helped so far. The benztropine was 1 mg. I hope you can figure out what is wrong with me. I wear a c pep for sleep apnea when I lay down the wiggling stops. Then when I stand up after laying down it starts to wiggle again. What is going on??

I am on metformin. I take fibercon because I was constipated
Did the wiggle episodes start while you were taking zyprexa or after it was withdrawn abruptly ?
How long has it been that you are facing this problem ? Is there any relieving date for to this wiggling ?
Regards

I think this wiggle could be either a withdrawal symptom of zyprexa or an extra pyramidal side effect from taking zyprexa. In each of these cases, use of benzatropine 2 mg twice a day with amantadine at dose of 100 mg once a day can actually help you to overcome this wiggle effectively.
So kindly try these two medications for 2 weeks and see the recovery yourself.
Wish you all the best.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
