hi there I was put on Zyprexa for almost 15 years and I developed diabetes. for the past 12 months my doctor has been tapering it from 20 milligrams down to 2.5 I did it really gradually. I stayed on a dose for a month and then reduced and then sometimes three weeks or two weeks and then reduced. I have not had any problems with insomnia or any other symptoms. mind you I am on loxipim and paxil also. now I am on 1.25 milligrams and will stay on this for a month and then go down to .625 I am scared of completely going off of the drug even though me reductions have been easy. But I am determined to go through the withdrawal process even if it is distressing. I hope that my story has given someone else hope because I want to hear success stories that help me think that I too can be free of this drug.
