Hi all. I've been on olanzapine 3 days now, it seems to have helped with intrusive thoughts I was getting. I was just wondering how long people was on these before the med settled properly and you felt normal again? Thanks. Leanne
I am on this stuff Olanzapine 15mg per day and I completely loathe it.
i was diagnosed as late onset Bi Polar. The tablet keeps me down, my spirits low.
i believe in having a good life, not necessarily a long life.
i would pay the earth to come off it and not be under the mental health auspices.
olanzapine is a horrid drug. Best wishes, Mel
Hi Leanne I agree with Mel, it's a terrible drug. I was on it for nearly 20 years for a psychotic illness. I recovered from the illness after a few years but couldn't get off the meds f9r another 15 years. While I was on it I felt like my personality was being eroded away and I was becoming less sociable turning into a zombie. Also I put on loads of weight. Coming off it was the hardest thing ive ever done but now it's been a year and im back to my old self again.obviously the longer you're on it the harder it is to get off it.
