Not enough info: to be able to provide any predictive answer. Don't know how long you have been on zyprexa or what your dose is. Don't know your diagnosis- as paranoia can be a feature of a number of diagnoses. Don't what type of non-pharmacological treatments you are receiving. Please speak more with your psychiatrist to
get an idea. This is a complex issue and one that will not have a black or white/ yes or no

A 37-year-old female asked:
Is it safe to take celexa (citalopram) and baclofen both 2gether for ongoing txs?Any reason 2 fear a bad reaction?, or not 2 take em both?

I wouldn't worry: 2 classes of drugs, often used together. That being said, because of the sedation with Baclofen if you're only taking one a day i'd take it at bedtime, unless you need it during the day. Citalopram (celexa) can be taken in the morning or at night if it doesn't effect your sleep. If you have MS or spasticity and need Baclofen several times a day take the Celexa (citalopram) when you have less in the way of pos.

A 33-year-old member asked:
I dread the day my son turns 18 because I fear he will want to meet his biological parents. That's selfish but true.?

Discuss with him: Not knowing how old our son is is hard to give advice. Does he know that he is adopted? If so have you put a positive spin on it? Is it fear that he has discussed it? What do you know of his biological and what was the reason? There are questions i would have to know and then i could answer completely. If you have been frank with him it possibly will not matter whether he meets them.

Therapist: I guess each one of us has to overcome our fear of death in one way or another. If this has you preoccupied and is interfering with your life then i would recommend seeing a therapist as that may be the best long-term answer for you. Your doctor may be able to get you connected with right therapist if necessary.
