One eye feels like it is bulging, is itchy and flips over. Is this from trazodone, Prozac haldol (haloperidol) or zyprexa?

Acute dystonic react: It sounds like you're having an atypical acute dystonic reaction. Usually both eyeballs are affected. This is from the combination of Haldol and the zyprexa.

If it is painful however you can go to the emergency room and they will give you an injection but I would recommend that you tell them that you think you are having an acute dystonic reaction because these are not as common as they used to be. ...Read more
