Hi biolgulden

I'm sorry that you've been struggling coming off Olanzapine. Yes, I was on Olanzapine for about 12 months. I came off it very gradually, with advice from my psychiatrist, reducing my doses I think every month over quite a long period. I think I was reducing it over 6 months even. This really helped me. I have to say I didn't struggle with any side effects, and it also gave me confidence that I was well, and will be OK coming off it.

However, others I'm sure will have other stories, and I know some people have found it helpful just to stay on a low dose of anti psychotic, I think it's important we all do whatever works for us.

Take care, and I hope that you have all the support you need, never hesitate to ask more questions, or share experiences here. We are all here for you.
