i just joined this forum to contribute my story about quitting olanzapine and hopefully finding some meaningful help with the suffering im going through.
i was originally prescribed olanzapine years ago and only tried it for three weeks. After not enjoying how it made me feel i quit cold turkey on 5mg. i felt mild insomnia and intense akathisia for 6 months, until i had a psychotic episode with my family that put me in the ER.
i was re prescribed 5mg zyprexa which then became 10mg a month later. After 3 months or so i quit cold turkey earlier this month January of 2022.
since then i have been experiencing frequent panic attacks, loss of apetite, insomnia, and depression. the insomnia is so bad that i automatically slow or stop my breathing right before i drift off to sleep. i think i developed some type of sleep apnea.
does anyone else have breathing issues during sleep? has anyone succesfully and honestly quit this drug?
