I was on a psych ward for a suicide attempt via Klonopin overdose.
I had a bad night where I felt agitated and had weird intrusive thoughts about a lurking, menacing 'presense.' In hindsight, I'd have to call it a psychotic episode (a first for me).
I spoke up and they gave me Zyprexa and put me in an observation room. In a short while I felt wired to the extreme and began having vivid, cartoonish, closed-eye visuals. It looked like I was flying in a small plane over a winding jungle river below the treeline. It was so vivid, I got motion sickness from the constant maneuvering of the plane.
So, agitated with visual hallucinations: just what the Zyprexa should have prevented. I won't take that drug ever again.
