#1

i didnt take it last night, whats the with-drawl spytoms? im thinking of stoping them

Pedro, while not advisable, quitting Zyprexa cold turkey is generally safe. You may have some rebound insomnia, but that’s it.


#3

yes i had to take two sleeping pills last night but other than that i feel fine, would you say i will be ok with-out this zyprexa pill

Now you’re venturing into uncharted territory. Are you asking me if it’s a good idea to stop your antipsychotic? My advice would be talk to your pdoc about this. Some people, including me, can be on medication for 5 years or so, and go off of it. Others have a life sentence.

im in remission 2 years,over all im feeling very well every-day im even getting bouts super inner peace, with no syptoms,i want to try stopping the zyprexa, ive gained 5 stone im way over weight


#6

Maybe instead of stopping it entirely, try asking your doctor to reduce thee dose. The idea is to keep you in recovery and sane.


#7

thanks for your advise, i will consider it


#8

are you taking any tablets Alien99?

Hi Pedro, I’m just on lithium, no antipsychotics.
