I am feeling numb in olanzapine.

No emotions,no feelings.

My brain damaged beyond repair.

Dreams are the result of physical damage.It got nothing to do with minds occupation.

I am still suffering risperidone cold turkey after one month usage from August 2016.

Sensitivity under skull in different places occasionally.

One place at a time.It is lasting 2 days.

As if something boiled mildly underneath.

If I touch the place it is sensitive with mild pain.

I am in fear,once I taper olanzapine completely what will be the symptoms.

Will I have to face skull sensitivity every day ?

Will I be able to sleep without dreams disturbing my sleep?

One thing for sure. 

Things will get better gradually. I too face head pressure along with myriad other devastating things.

 

Once you are off, don't expect sudden or stop expecting coz it breaks down a person more.

If you get better soon, then there is nothing to think of.

 

Btw, you changed the picture. Wishes.

Heavy headedness after deep dreaming.

Waking up constantly by 2 a.m.every day.

I am maintaining sleep hygiene.

It's been two weeks down to 2.5 m.g of olanzapine.

From two days dreams became more trouble some.

Super heat at left side of scalp ,as if little lava streamed in side.

Scalp became tender at the lava streamed places.

I am unable to wake up at the starting of this whole thing.

Heavy headedness after waking up from dream (hypnopompic hallucinations) .

Whole day ruined.

Whole day fear.

Whole day searching for solution online.

What to do?

Olanzapine is not the right medicine for my problem.

I want my past life, peaceful mind, peaceful sleep back.

I am suspecting more intense hallucinations,voices,skull burns in coming days.

How can I stand all these.

What to do?

What a mistake,I went to that psychiatrist.

Its lack of sleep.

I too face issues.. my  sleep backlogs piled up a lot ( I smtimes think so).

 

Try homeopathy coffea crud 200 at bed time.  10 drops direclty with quarter cup of water approx. 

I feel sleepy on about 20-30 mins after it.

 

Suggesting this as this is not an add on burden to tge body. Also 100 ml indian version is 40-50 bucks. Worth a try.

Bhasskee ,Pacitane is for covering side effects of olanzapine.

Once I taper olanzapine to zero,I will start tapering pacitane as well.

I will be drug free by August 2018 hopefully,touchwood.

Also bhasski,try drinking 300ml of lukewarm baffelo milk mixing with half a teaspoon Haldi,

before going to bed.

And tell me how your sleep improved.

I am drinking haldi milk for past 2 months. Its doing good.

Sleep is okay as far as past insomnia is concerned. But still far from optimal.

 

I have more symptoms like DP/DR which bothers me and anger.

Also anxiety which comes coz of this.

At 1.875 m.g.

Appetite came back.

Its been a week I started enjoying food.

Emotions came back.

I actually cried on someone’s demise.

I looked at the moon and didn’t get any emotion.

I just told to myself it’s beautiful.

But didn’t feel the overwhelming love towards the moon like before the meds.

Is alternate day taper advisable ?

0.625 is very small crumb.

Shall I jump to zero while using the medicine every day?

or

I should use alternate day , before jumping to zero?
