My 18 yr. old son started Zyprexia 20 mg nightly for voices and some paranoia. It's working pretty well, but he's only been on it for 3 weeks and he already feels unmotivated to do anything, even play his video games! has anyone else had this problem, is their something to counteract this ? thanks

  • Dear Mom 55 -this is my first time on this website- I just put my story on I hope you can read it- it is about my son . I am only writing this to you -to prevent what happened to my son------and led to his death-after being put in a mental institution for paranoia-that came on very suddenly. He had a kidney transplant when he was 6 -he died at 26. Vicky
