    Have you tried to taper at a faster rate with the zyprexa?

    I know you are tapering with other meds but you should definitely be able to taper at a faster rate than that while keeping your symptoms very manageable.

      Thanks Travis. Do you know anybody else who has multi tapered off zyprexa and other drugs at the same time. i am,having excessive sweating and very negative thoughts whilst tapering. Are these side effects of tapering?

    I really wish this drug was not permitted as its a pretty rough ride coming off it so definitely taper off very very slowly

    I endured many months of severe withdrawal affects going cold turkey which is the worse thing one can do

    What helped me get through was going to almost daily yoga classes lots of walks eating super healthy and good quality supplements

    Just hang in there😊
