Physical pain from withdrawl of meds?

  1. Nov 4, 2005 #1
    Zyprexa is an anti-psychotic, if, say, u missed about 3 or 4 weeks of ur meds (which ur sposed to take 20mg daily, and had been taking for almost a year straight) would u get chest pains that've so far lasted a week?

    Any chest pain should be immediately reported to a physician! That's one of those things that you don't wait around to see if it goes away on it's own.

    Even though the med you're referring to is an anti-psychotic, the real jist of your question is more related to biology and possibly cardiovascular effects than mind & brain, so I'm moving this over there.
