I’m currently on 7.5mg olanzapine(zyprexa), and I’m going to try to taper off. The next step would be 5mg then as there doesn’t exist anythingn between 7.5 and 5.
But on some website I read something about (if I remember correctly) that you should taper off 10% every few weeks. Well, I don’t think that’s possible then, cause from 7.5mg to 5mg is more than a 10% reduction if I don’t suck completely at math. I don’t think it’s possible to split the tablets either(to my knowledge)
When I (a couple of months ago) said to my pdoc that I wanted to wean off xyprexa, I got the impression that he thought it would be fine to go from 7.5mg to 5mg. (tbh I can’t remember the conversation completely, but that’s the impression I got, that it would be fine going from 7.5 to 5)
