Maybe show that article to your doctor and say you’d like to try >20mg Olanzapine. That’s what Id do. I don’t know what else to suggest. I’m sorry you’re still suffering.


From the article

pharmacokinetic aspects alone cannot account for why the disease may sometimes be resistant to 20mg of olanzapine but respond to higher doses.

Can you describe what your delusions are about?

Have you tried Latuda?

I’m in the same boat. They keep changing my meds but nothing convinced me the men aren’t real. My therapist was all over me about logic and how illogical I’m being. It’s really frustrating. I’m now on Haldol. It helps me with some things but not everything.
