Just wondering if any of you guys and gals experienced any drop in attention spans if. you find it hard to concentrate. Also if you find conversations hard to follow and basically anything that you have to think about you find it hard while you are on Olanzapine. Thank you.

    HI Daniel

    Oh how I can relate to that! I remember how worried/frightened I was about my cognitive function when on that drug! I expressed this to the psychiatrist for a year until I was blye in the face but they wouldn't listen so I took drastic steps and went cold turkey which wasn't wise but within 48 hours I noticed a profound difference of thinking more clearer/freely and I only got better

    I felt alive/me again!

    It's lethal and that's why I've put my name forward to work in Medication Management as a Consumer Consultant I find out next week if I'm successful

    It's been a very interesting experience!

    I hope u too will feel yourself again!
