Posted on Mon, 18 Jul 2016
Question: I am supposed to start today taking Zyprexa 10mg. I am so sluggish already. Sleeping constantly. I have taken adderall 20mg 2x's daily for years for ADD. However stopped all med a few months ago. Causing a downhill occurrence. Would taking my adderall script be beneficial to my recovery with the Zyprexa. Helping me get back to fuctional activities? Stopping the constant "down" sleeping effect?

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for writing to us. I can understand your concern.

Zyprexa increases sedation while adderal decreases sedation so adderall will help if you feel sleepy.

Provide your diagnosis and/or symptoms so I can guide you more specifically. I could not get it that for what you are prescribed zyprexa.

Hope I have answered your query, I will be happy to help further.
