View Full Version : Gently Coming Off Olanzapine

16-09-09, 15:09
I'm absolutely fed up of the side effects of the Olanzapine 2.5mg I take.

My psychiatrist tells me to keep taking them, but after much discussion with my NHS therapist, I'm going to ween myself off them.

2.5mg is avery, very low dose. In effect, I could stop taking them completely. But my therapist suggested that I miss one out every other day, then reduce it even more over time.

So, I'm doing that.

Today is the first day after not taking one last night. I feel ok but a little bit weird. It feels like I've got a bit of a head cold, a dry mouth, and a little spaced out. Is this normal?
