DOSE:
10 mg oral Pharms - Olanzapine (daily)
  900 mg oral Pharms - Lithium (daily)
  1 cig. smoked Cannabis  
    smoked Tobacco  

BODY WEIGHT: 140 lb


(the backstory is below) I was prescribed two 300mg Lithium pills to take at night, along with a 10mg Zyprexa. In the morning I am to take one more 300mg Lithium pill. They have definitely helped my paranoid schizophrenia, anxiety, and depression.

So they made us go to all these substance abuse and stress management classes while in the Hospital. I didn't plan on smoking weed when I was discharged from the hospital. But I discovered that my Lithium and Zyprexa cocktail made my personality sort of dull. I guess it really did its job...Lithium is a Mood Stabalizer I believe. Anway...I was kind of afraid to smoke weed in combination with the pills. I have been out of the hospital for three days.

I did a little research in the Experiences Board on both pills before hand. There was one report of Cannabis and Olanzapine and the writer said he had to bad effects. I decided I would take the chance and just take a puff or two to see how if made me feel.

After smoking a few puffs of my mini blunt (cigar filled with cannabis) I didn't feel much but I think I might have been a bit impatient. I ended up smoking 3/4ths of the blunt. I feel like the marijuana helped elevate my mood a little bit. This is my first time smoking since my breakdown. I feel like the high is more balanced than before I was on the medication. Someone described their bud smoking in combo with the Olanzapine as 'felt like the first time I got high'. I would agree with that. Before I started taking medication I would get the euphoria and elevated mood from cannabis, but I would also become very easily paranoid.

The only bad effects I had from this was a little bit of anxiety and paranoia. I think if I would have lowered my dose on the cannabis I wouldn't have had those problems.

***Backstory***
Well I just got out of the Behavioral Health Center. I had some kind of mental breakdown. My mom called the cops because I grabbed the wheel while my aunt was driving. My aunt who is usually very gentle had somehow become a gangster. 'I should punch you in the nose muthafucka' I told them to let me out of the car. I got out and started walking towards my house maybe 3 miles away. The cops stopped while I was walking down the sidewalk. '[Name]?' I kept walking...somehow the officer suddenly had me in handcuffs. I tried to elbow him. He pinned me on the ground with the head on the back of my head. I started hitting my head on the concrete, like a baby, pouting. I think I recall the officer laughing at this point. I thought that I had been sent to hell, a different dimension...even though what I looked at was my hometown. I had to fight my way out of everything in order to get back to the mosque by my house so they could chop my head off. Like I said, I had a mental breakdown.

I did DOC about a year and a half ago...a few days right before my 19th birthday. Dose Unknown. But I was convinced that I had died and God sent me back to earth to be a messenger of peace. I believe that still. But my medicine has leveled me out and now that I can see that alot of my thoughts were extremely paranoid.

Anyway...I am glad I ended up in the 'Behavioral Health Center'. I ate good food everyday, got the medication Zyprexa and Lithium to help me function better. I feel like I have a fresh start coming from that place. I want to move to Colorado or California...somewhere where I can get medical marijuana. We will see what happens...I'm not sure Zyprexa and Lithum are enough for me...it may be too much! My motivation and energy level seems low from the two pills.
