None.

I’m thinking of restarting. Not because I lose track of reality. But because reality is rather harsh to deal with, without the numbing of meds.

I know what you mean. I didn’t quit drugs, but I went from olanzapine to latuda for a short while. I got much more in touch with reality on Latuda. I felt a lot better on it in the daytime, but then every evening I would get seriously depressed. I would have stayed on it though if it wasn’t for the insomnia problems coming off olanzapine.

Don’t start taking AP’s if you feel life is hard though. At least it would be better to get something else. Like valium or something.

That’s too bad, that it didn’t work for you. I heard Latuda is quite a good med for some.

I’m just in a hard situation, but maybe that’s not a good reason to be on an AP indeed :slight_smile: . I’m a bit scared of valium though…it’s so addictive. Maybe I’ll get some chamomille…it’s addictive too, but milder.

Yeah, I guess herbs is a good alternative too, at least if you are off meds. On olanzapine the calming effect of herbs doesen’t really register on me. Olanzapine is too dominant it seems.

I have a plan to try Latuda again, but I’ll have to get something on the side to replace the sleep action of olanzapine. I’m seeing my doc in 3 weeks.

Yeah I guess latuda from what I heard is a lot less sedating. Olanzapine made me sleep and eat loads and loads. :slight_smile:

Olanzapine used to make me sleep, but then after a few years it didn’t work so good on sleep anymore. Instead I’ve been struggling with insomnia for a long time. That’s one of the reasons I want off it. Eating is a issue, yes. I manage to have a stable weight now doing 6,25mg. On 10mg it used to be very difficult to control eating.

80 mg latuda

Half a imovane at night sometimes a whole one.
I need my imovane as I have insomnia.
Benzos make me anxious and don’t work but imovane is the best.
My dr was reluctant to prescribing more for me and thinks i should see a psychiatrist but I can’t afford a psychiatrist and i don’t need one as I’m stable enough.

I’m f u cked if I don’t get my imovane.
Then I don’t get sleep and that makes a schizophrenic psychotic.

God help me get my imovane.
Half a tablet isn’t some huge dose anyway.

Seeing dr tomorrow.

If she says no I might go to different Gp and if they all say no I will have to save up for a psychiatrist.

Psychiatrist have never said no to prescribing me imovane to sleep.
