ZYPREXA RELPREVV Is a Long-Acting Medicine Used to Treat Schizophrenia in Adults
To help you feel better, your doctor has prescribed ZYPREXA RELPREVV (zy-prex-a rel-prev).
- You may want to track your progress each day by writing down the changes you notice. That will help you see the small, gradual improvements in your symptoms. It may also help you see if you are not improving or if any symptoms are getting worse. You may want to ask a friend or family member to help you check your progress. He or she may see changes that you do not see.
- If your symptoms do not improve or you are feeling worse, let your doctor or nurse know. He or she may need to change how much of the medicine you are taking or change to a different medicine. If you are seeing progress, let your doctor or nurse know that too. Even the smallest successes can help you take the next step.
- Keep up-to-date with your ZYPREXA RELPREVV shots just as your doctor or nurse tells you. Work with your doctor or nurse to develop a treatment plan that meets your needs. Medicine is a very important part of your treatment, but there are other things you can do to continue feeling better. Working with a counselor and being involved in group therapy or a support group are also very helpful. Talk with your doctor or nurse about what else you can do to continue to take steps toward your goals.
