My friend you will not die and  olanzapine will not  kill you if you take it 1 year. You will taper it in due time. I take 5mg olanzapine too  bcz if I dont I have sleeplessness, You taper it when the time is right

I had paranoid hallucinations .So I used risperidone.

Risperidone cold turkey made me sleepless and dreams.

If I taper olanzapine,will I get paranoid again?

 

Maybe, you are right, if you really had hallucinations, then Zyprexa might help. But try to take only really necessary amount, because I took it once one day and it was terrible. I had to stop it. I was so tired, I couldnt get out of the bed, I couldnt even take care of my children, I felt like hit with the hammer. Therefore I know that it is not only “easy“ medicament.

Were you on high dose of zyprexa Martina?

Risperidone made me the way zyprexa made you.

I am glad I tapered risperidone successfully.

No, it was actually small dose but nevertheless it was scary. I took it only once in the evening. And in the morning I had a feeling that I was like hit with the hammer,  I couldnt even put my head out of the pillow. I was so happy that they took it immediately away in other case I couldnt care for my children.

I lost the taste of food and sleep.

Risperidone cold turkey robbed my peace.

I lost the ability of natural  nap and sleep.

I lost the ability to sit at dining table and enjoy my meal.

I am living like a zombie.

I am dumping down the food through my throat like filling cotton in a pillow.

Every day,living  is like I am counting down the days until the final day.

I knoexactly what you're going thru.  your brain is trying to fix itself and it will but unfortunately it's going to take a while, but it WILL fix itself,  try to eat as best as you can.

 

Perhaps a ketogenic diet might help, i heard it can help with neurological function.

Rupa, are you sure that all these side effects are from Risperidone? Cant there be something of it also from Zyprexa?

You are right.

All these symptoms are from zyprexa.

But risperidone cold turkey made me to use zyprexa.

I am planning to buy jeweller's scale to start tapering zyprexa at 5% reduction every four weeks.

Thank you.

Bought jewelry scale.Unable to use it properly.I weighed 5 m.g tablet.

It is showing 0.08.

It seems ,I have to use tablet cutter for 10% reduction every four weeks.

In this way I can't get accurate measurements.

I never understood mixing in water and weigh with syrenges.

It's been an year risperidone cold turkey.

Still I am facing hypnopompic hallosinations.

I guess my brain changed beyond repair.

If this dreams  disappear as time passing by,I would ask nothing more.

Please God.

Yes friend miko789,I bought a pill cutter.

I will start using 2.5 m.g olanzapine tablets to cut and taper.

At present I am using 5 m.g olanzapine at night.

No sugar, honey is better, cause sugar raises glycose levels in the body fast and drops them instantly.

 

Pill cutter is better to go on with taper but be patient.

Rupa,

 

I am sorry you are suffering so much. Insomnia is horrible. I know what torture it is.  I literally did not sleep for six weeks back in 2013. That's why I ended up taking remeron. I still have insomnia but I have to take temazepam to sleep. I will worry about getting off of the temazepam later, after I get off of the remeron. I don't want to go through that insomnia ever again. I am sending good thoughts your way.

It's been 5 days started tapering at 10%.

On 5 m.g I always slept 8 hours and more.

Now at 10% reduction,sleep reduced to 6 hours.

Waking up at 4 a.m with a dream.(hypnopompic hallucination).

Dream effecting on breath and heart.

So I got an idea.Which worked wonders that I am setting an alarm at 4 am which is dream time usually.

From 4 am to wake up time I am just lieing on bed with cool mind.

So far tapering going well.

-----

One of my neighborhood lady living without sleep from 15 years.

Ever since her husband died she lost sleep.

But she never thought of using sleep medication.

Her eyes are fine.

No sign of any adverse symptoms in her.

She is a happy get going person.

She is the living proof that we can live without sleep happily.

Rupa, you are so brave. I hope these hypnopompic hallucinations will decrease with the time. Somewhere I believe that your body will feel better without that Zyprexa.

Yeah. Its Bhaskar.

I am trying to cope up with things... improvements are there, but happening too slow. Neuro emotions, physical fatigue and neck pains .. all the stuff is still there... 

If I see in retrospect of the year, things improved. 

Most of the time I got the feelings of 15 year old as if I have forgotten the life experience of life lived outside.. some moments it come back, difficult to explain.

Dear rupa,

 

I do some research and I found that you have symptoms of narcolepsy.

 

Narcoleptics enter in the beginnings of sleep into the REM phase when vivid dreams occurs.

 

Narcolepsy is treated with drugs that suppress REM sleep like SSRI and tricyclic antidepressants.

 

I know that advise psychotropics is against site policy and in most cases I am also against it but I think that if you can't sleep without drugs antidepressants are safer than antipsychotics.

 

You can try if it works.

There is nothing trial and error with such drugs.

I would strongly advise against it. 

 

 

Healthy eating and taper the olanzapine as slowly as your health says.

 

I lost sleep and full circadian rhythm when on drugs. Lost  almost 4 years of sleep when I have  reputed doctors and money to spend on. Stay away from ssris, snris ad APs.

Dear Risilox

Thank you for the information.

I want to see ,how my brain will function day and night,once I taper olanzapine successfully.

I am filled with fear,that I don't have to face brain damage ,without necessary medication.
