15 mg oral Pharms - Olanzapine (daily)
    repeated oral Alcohol - Beer/Wine (liquid)


After being diagnosed with a mood disorder I was prescribed Zyprexa. At that time in my life I was drinking regularly and decided that since I was going to be drinking anyway I might as well down the the pill with a beer or two.

I immediatly felt like something was wrong. I was completely disoriented and within an hour there was a horrible sharp pain in my head. It felt like there was a solitary ice-cold beetle quickly burrowing a maze through my brain.

I continued taking the reccomended dosage for my mood disorder, but the symptoms persisted. This is an anti-psychotic/anti seizure drug. Don't be afraid to tell your doctor if it's not right for you.
