    Have you talked to your doctor about this?I can't tell you how  long you will feel this way, but your brain has to get used to replacing what zyprexa did to it. Maybe talking to your doctor you could go down a little slower. Sorrry you feel so bad I wish I could help.

    Hi Garett, sorry you’re having such difficulty. It sounds like maybe you need to consider this medication isn’t a good match for you.

     After all the posts I’ve read from others, I realize that to even try this medication, you have yo be pretty desperate. 

    I think with illnesses, we believe there’s a magic pill, and there just isn’t. Sometimes, it’s just a lot of hard work to maintain good health. When you’re at your wit’s end, it takes a lot of motivation and thoughtfulness to adapt to difficulties. 

    In the end, when one thing isn’t working, try something else. Keep researching until you find something that resonates with you, then research it more. Try the things you feel have the best chance of success.

    Reading the posts on this drug, seems like you’re doomed before you try it.  I know it was really unhealthy for my mother. 

    Are there some diet, exercise and supplements that could help?   There has to be something you can do to feel better.

    Hi again,

       What did you take the olanzapine for to begin with? Do you  suffer from depression an anxiety or bi polar?
