resistance to certain substances
dear doctor.
i'm your average 20 something guy that drinks and smokes and has experimented and maybe sometimes more with a few illegal substances in my time. Now first of all, i am isking this out of pure curiosity. out of the drugs i have tried. ecstacy just does not seem to have an effect on me. i have tried larger doses thinking my size was a major factor (6f8" and 156Kg) but no matter how high the dose, still no effect. then i started to take into consideration my several dissorders. here is a list and the medicine witch has beern perscribed by my psychiatrist and their active ingredient.
1) tourrettes syndrome= ZYPREXA 10Mg Olanzipine
2) ADHD= N.A (RITALIN is contra indicated to ZYPREXA)
3)Tempral lobe eppilepsy (TLE) ZYPREXA
4) Chronic depression= FLUOXATINE 60Mg
5) Obsesive compulsive dissorder OCD = N.A
6) Mild Insomnia = ZYPREXA acts as sedative

i am asking you this. because you are a pharmacist who knows these Perscription drug bettter than anyone. Could the chemical imbalances in my body and or the medicine mean something?
PLEASE NOTE. I am not asking for a solution but rather and answer. and if my medicine is the cause, then it is guaranteed that i wont stop taking my meds just top get a high.
Any Input would be much appreciated
Yours Sincerely

My only answer would be that taking E while you are already taking so many drugs that may affect the CNS is nothing but pharmacological russian roulette. Serious side effects may occur and if you want to see your thirties stay away from the E.
