Spookypaws: Has anyone successfully tapered off zyprexa?

I'm having a hard time taper off 2.5 mg of zyprexa. I went every other day for 7 days then quit taking it and only managed to go two nights before insomnia and anxiety kicked in. I'm on zyprexa for sleeping anyway, is there hope for me getting off this drug?

Of course. Go to the Introductions forum and search for "zyprexa"

I took it for six years, 15 to 5 mg. I have been off a bit over 2.5 years. 2.5mg is way too large a dose to jump off from. Hopefully you have seen the Zyprexa tapering thread by now. Good luck!

1st round Prozac 1989/90, clear depression symptoms. 2nd round Prozac started 1999 when admitted to dr. I was tired. Prozac pooped out, switch to Cymbalta 3/2006. Diagnosed with bipolar disorder due to mania 6/2006--then I was taken abruptly off Cymbalta and didn't know I had SSRI withdrawal. Lots of meds for my intractable "bipolar" symptoms.

Zyprexa started about 9/06, mostly 5mg. Tapered 4/12 through12/29/12

Wellbutrin. XL 300 mg started 1/07, tapered 1/18/13 through 7/8/13

Oxazepam mostly continuously since 6/06, 30mg since 12/12, tapered 1.17.14 through 8.26.15

11/06 Lithium 600mg twice daily, 2.2.14 400mg TID DIY liquid, 2.12.14 1150mg, 3.2.14 1100mg, 3.18.14 1075mg, 4/14 updose to 1100mg, 6.1.14 900 mg capsules 7.8.14 810mg, 8.17.14 725mg, 8.24.24 700mg...10.22.14 487.5mg, 3.9.15 475mg, 4.1.15 462.5mg 4.21.15 450mg 8.11.15 375mg, 11.28.15 362.5mg, back to 375mg four days later, 3.4.16 updose to 475 (too much going on to risk trouble)

9/4/13 Toprol-XL 25mg daily for sudden hypertension, tapered 11.12.13 through 5.3.14, last 10 days or so switched to atenolol

I've managed in the past 2 months to go from 7.5 mg to 2.5 mg. I tried to taper off a week ago but got such bad insomnia and anxiousness that my psychiatrist told be to just stay on 2.5. The last two nights I've gotten such fragmented sleep and today I've been so anxious, it comes in waves like a half hour I feel crappy and then the next I feel fine. I'm afraid tonight I won't sleep, and insomnia is the whole reason I'm on these drugs. Should I updose to 5 mg to see if I get better sleep?

Ok sorry for that. I've been on zyprexa since March along with luvox, gabapentin, and and trazadone. I would also add I was on klonopin too, but got off that 2 months ago. I had a panic attack last December which started this whole thing, I didn't sleep for 4 days.

Your drug cocktail is very eccentric for any psychiatric diagnosis. The doctor who prescribed them must believe in the "one drug per symptom" philosophy. Certainly prescribing gabapentin, trazodone, and Zyprexa together is excessive -- they all "brakes."

 

It's a lot of drugs and, as you can see, some bad interactions. Risking serotonin syndrome is a big drug-prescribing no-no. Even if they're not so intense you feel them, these interactions degrade your general health. They can also cause "racing thoughts and OCD and some serious depression."

 

See Serotonin Syndrome or Serotonin Toxicity

 

Please read some of the other Introductions topics. You will see many people have gotten extensive psychiatric diagnoses for what turns out to be the normal stresses of daily living.

 

To go off drugs successfully, you will need to learn to manage your symptoms with non-drug techniques, which is entirely possible.

The drop from 5mg to 2.5mg olanzapine has in the past cause intractable insomnia for me, then dropping to nil was the same with insomnia.  I went 6-9 months being olanzapine free and I still had insomnia.  I think it's just to much of shock to the nervous system to make these drops.  At the moment I'm on 3.85mg and overall I have been sleeping okay.

 

You really can't cut the pills accurately so I hope you get the orodispersible tablets or the wafers that will dissolve in water and make tapering easy and accurate for you.

Another night of fragmented sleep. I took only 2.5mg last night, but I'm thinking of up dosing tonight back to 5mg to see if that helps. I feel like I'm on a merry go round and will never recover.

Spookypaws, it will take some time for your nervous system to recover from skipping doses and quitting. You were only taking 2.5mg before.

 

Please read About reinstating and stabilizing to reduce withdrawal symptoms

If you go up to 5mg, that will be that much more to taper off.

What do you suggest alto? I really need some sleep, and going down to 2.5 seems to not be working. I was on 7.5, then went to 5mg, then that same month went to 2.5mg, then tried to taper off. When I suffered complete insomnia my dr. Put me back on 2.5, but it's not working..I'm desperate here..

You need to read the link on tapering Zyprexa that was noted above. You are going to need to make dosages in between the tablet sizes at some point. Read some of the threads on insomnia, there are many ideas. It is such a common problem.

1st round Prozac 1989/90, clear depression symptoms. 2nd round Prozac started 1999 when admitted to dr. I was tired. Prozac pooped out, switch to Cymbalta 3/2006.

Thanks for the advice. I did read the article, but I get confused on making my own liquid. I have a pill splitter, I can do that, but I'm confused on how to make my own liquid and how to measure out the 10% from what I should take. Maybe someone can help me, but first I need to get stable. I'll try 3.75 tonight and see if that works I don't know how to cut only 1 mg from 2.5 mg tablet, I can cut one in half though.

Well I slept better last night I'm pretty sure, but I'm going to see my psychiatrist tomorrow to talk about the medications and see what she wants me to do. I took 3.75mg last night and I feel ok today. I just wish I could get off this poison.

 

Can someone explain to me how to do a liquid titration, and how to cut 1% out of the solution. It's really confusing to me.

Hi Spooky... you would benefit from looking thru the information on the tapering sub forumHow to make a liquid from capsules. Taper by 10% of my dosage.  While it may sound complicated to make a liquid solution, it really is very easy once you get the hang of it...

Hi Spooky-- Not need to get confused about making the liquid and using it.  Skyler pointed you toward a really good thread about making liquid solutions;

 

How to make a liquid from tablets or capsules

 

There is also a good one on how to use it;

 

Using an oral syringe and other tapering techniques

 

How long have you been on the 3.75 mg and how are you taking that dose?  If you haven't been taking it at that lever very long it would be a good idea to stabilize for a while before starting a taper.

 

It would be very helpful if you would fill out a signature block with all your meds and taper history;

 

Please put your withdrawal history in your signature      

20 years on Paxil starting at 20mg and working up to 40mg. Sept 2011 started 10% every 6 weeks taper (2.5% every week for 4 weeks then hold for 2 additional weeks), currently at 7.9mg. Oct 2011 CTed 15oz vodka a night, to only drinking 2 beers most nights, totally sober Feb 2013.

Since I wrote this I have continued to decrease my dose by 10% every 6 weeks (2.5% every week for 4 weeks and then hold for an additional 2 weeks). I added in an extra 6 week hold when I hit 10mg to let things settle out even more. When I hit 3mgpw it became hard to split the drop into 4 parts so I switched to dropping 1mgpw (pill weight) every week for 3 weeks and then holding for another 3 weeks.  The 3 + 3 schedule turned out to be too harsh so I cut back to dropping 1mgpw every 4 weeks which is working better.

Current dose 0.000mg 04-15-2017

I read it but I'm still confused. How would I make a1:1 solution from 3.75mg? I know I crush that amount into my container but how much water would I add? And do I draw out the amount I want to take or do I draw out the amount of reduction I'm making?

I was on 2.5, but now I'm taking 3.75. That might change tomorrow though when I see my psychiatrist. I'm so angry the doc at the hospital put me on this med, I wish they tried something else for sleeping besides this. I'm fearful to take this drug and I'm fearful not to. I hate zyprexa even if I do feel ok on it.

This is how you might make a suspension to take 3.75mg (or less):

 

- Measure out 10mL water into a clean jar.

 

- Put 2 2.5mg tablets in it. Wait until they dissolve. You will have 5mg Zyprexa in 10mL water (1:2 concentration or 1mg in 2mL).

 

- Put the cap on and shake the jar gently.

 

- With a 10mL oral syringe, take 7.5mL of the liquid, which contains 3.75mg Zyprexa.

Another night of not sleeping well. I'm probably going to have to go back to 5 mg I see my psychiatrist today so we'll see what she says. I hate this so much I feel like a failure and like I don't want to live anymore, my family deserves better than a shell of a person.

I'm not on it anymore, but I was. Really messed me up. I've been off it since january but had to take it a few times intermittently. I still take 100 mg of seroquel. I know how hard it is. Hang in there!

 

Once you get low, you may want to give microtapering a go with the orodispersible tablets. I think 10% is too much when you get low.
