Lillielou's olanzapine (zyprexa) taper


Recommended Posts

I have been trying to taper Olanzapine 2.5mg.


I have been dry cutting the tablets and finding impossible to get accurate doses.


I am going to attempt to do a liquid taper soon. I am so hoping this will make it easier.


2002-2010 Paxil 20mg.

switched to Prozac 20mg.

added Valium 10mg.


Tapered off Prozac no problems except depression for about 2 months.


Doctor took me off Valuum cold turkey in August 2014. Horrible withdrawal symptoms. Added Zyprexa 5 mg. to help with symptoms. Now feel like a zombie and trying to quit the zyprexa. Currently at approximately 2.2 mg. (dry cutting) impossible to get accurate dosage.


Going to try liquid microtaper.

Welcome, Lillielou.


You might stop tapering for a bit and let your nervous system settle down. Read
