    I'm still not out of the woods,but I'm banking on the extra Ven to hold the key of what was wrong.
    Had no appetite the last few days and my tummy's felt upset.
    Can't believe I only posted a few weeks ago on the success forum to say how well I was doing!
    I've been on Ven for years now,and have resigned myself to that being the case for the future.
    It's good to hear that your doing so well with the Olanzapine, it gives me more hope.
    Do you take anything else alongside it?
    No but I did once take sertraline with it but it messed up my sleep so I ditched it quickly
    I seem to do ok on 5mg olanzapine ,I'm not perfect and still get some anxiety but have learnt to live with it
    Try and get stable again on your meds ,you will be ok give it a few weeks

    Re: blunted emotions?

    Can I ask does this med stop the anxious thinking ? I'm currently on pregablin and mirtazapine which are controlling the physical symptoms but not the mental ones. My mind is racing with worrying thoughts

    Re: blunted emotions?

    Iv found ever since iv been on olanzipine, i dont have any joy or laughter or happeness anymore,i guess it has helped with some anxiety,i forget now cos its been two years on it 5mg,i was only put on it as a sleep aid and am sure since iv been on it i feel worse that i did before being on it,and have gained 4 stone in two years.im currently cutting it down very slowley..it works for some and not for others..good luck if its working for you
