Will my normal functions come back over time being off of the orap for a longer period of time? Will stimulants help? Or homeopathic medicine for for ADHD help with both problems? Will L-tyrosine, Grape seed extract or pine bark extract help? I just do not want to not orgasm permanently! Answered by Lacy Sheahan 2 years ago.

orap is a "last-resort" drug for your condition for precisely the reasons you describe (see link below). That your ADHD became worse on orap is consistent with how it behaves chemically in your brain (and my basic understanding of the brain chemistry associated with ADHD). I'm kind of amazed that your doc gave you orap knowing you had ADHD. You are 18 and should have a say in your treatment, tell your doc you want to try something else. Anyway, the sexual side effects are not permanent, or at least that's not been reported. Stimulants would not be the way to go to treat this side effect. It's scary, but relax about it as much as you can and be patient, things will start working again. I have no idea about how well the homeopathic treatments work, I suspect you would feel a lot better on them since most of the allopathic drugs prescribed for ADHD and Tourette's are heavy-duty psychotropic bastards with side effects ranging from annoying to ghastly. You sound like you're in hell now, how much worse could it be taking grape seed extract? Answered by Avelina Tahir 2 years ago.

Taking stimulants such as Ritalin or perhaps even something like methamphetamine have these kinda effect. not just for masturbation but also during sexual intercourse. I do not know if they have a cure for this. However sometimes its a mind over matter type of thing. If you focus too hard tho, it will never happen. Answered by Adele Blecha 2 years ago.

How long does Orap take to work? (Pimozide)?
Asked by Audria Essinger 2 years ago.

It takes up to several weeks for it to be titrated up and for it to gain effect over the dopamine channels and whatnot in the brain. Watch for side effects! Most important is that you've had an EKG (echocardiogram, aka, where they stick electrodes all over you and watch the signals on the machine printout to see if your heart is working properly) Because Orap and various other antipsychotics can cause life-threatening heart-rhythm changes that people have DIED from. Secondly, expect to be sleepy and groggy headed for a while. These drugs are very powerful and cause quite commonly, increased appetite, apathy, slowed thinking, so you feel like a slug when you take them at first. Also extremely important, if you turn yellow, which is called jaundice, it means your liver is not working and you have to get emergency medical help (Orap can damage the liver too) And watch for involuntary movemetns, especially of your face, such as lip smacking, involuntary chewing motions and tongue motions. These are called dyskenesia, and they can become PERMANENT if the drug is continued while they are present. So just watch for this stuff, buddy. 'cuz it DOES happen, even if unusual, and you need to get an EKG if you haven't already had one, to rule out any sort of heart condition that could turn fatal when Orap effects it. Answered by Anissa Ragasa 2 years ago.


I'm taking Orap for Tourettes..question..?
Hey ya'll, I'm 17 and getting ready to take Orap for some of my tics. I took it when I was around 8 and had loss of appetite. Do you think i'll have that symptom again? Has anyone else been on Orap? Side effects...good..bad...weight gain/loss. thanks :) Asked by Catarina Sugg 2 years ago.

I have heard Orap is the best medication for tourettes. At our support group, there is a couple people who swear by it. One who said it's the only one he's ever taken that gave him virtually no side effects. As for if you'll lose the appetite again, there is no way to know for sure!

Will a broken Orap pill work?
My son takes orap and the last pill is broken. Will it work at all if I give it to him Asked by Coy Falterman 2 years ago.

Yes, this anti-psychotic .. being 'broken' will still work. All this does is slightly change the rate of absorption. Though given it is an oral medication, and with a very long half life.. it doesn't make this 'dangerous'. Go ahead and utilize it. Answered by Georgine Swancey 2 years ago.

When you stop taking the medicine, you'll be okay. Look, you might feel sketchy about talking about this sort of thing with your doctor, but if there is one person with whom you CAN talk to about this, they are gonna be cool about it - so mention it to them next time you see them, alright?
