Hi. just joined this forum. God I feel sooo sick 😫. I don't know how long I've been taking olanzapine but my youngest is 17 now. I was prescribed it for anxiety and post natal depression. Over the years I have been on anything from 10mg when anxiety is out of control to 2.5mg when I'm feeling good. When anxiety is bad the doctor ups my dosage by 2.5mg at a time. Anyway in December 2019 I was really well and went to doctor to talk about coming off zypexa. He agreed and I started to reduce it. That was when my 2 years of he'll began. I didn't put it down to withdrawal until last December 2021 and I went to doc and announced I was on 1.25mg. Do you know what he said. Well done we class that as a dirty medication because of the side effects and withdrawal. I am so mad. I was never psychotic. I was overwhelmed with motherhood.
Anyway here I am now. Last Thursday (6days) I stopped the 1.25mg and I'm so sick. I haven't eaten in days. I have dry mouth and constant empty retching. My anxiety is awful. Heart palpitations etc. My head is clear though. It got so bad last night I took half 1.25mg (.625) and today is a little easier. Anyone suggest some natural products to help? Thanks for reading xxx
