Anyone know anything on Zyprexa (Olanzapine) and withdrawal?

Postby amyyy » Thu Sep 27, 2012 5:51 pm

I was taking 15mg of Zyprexa for Bipolar Disorder, not for very long, about a month or two. I hated it, major weight gain and feeling zombified, tired and snappy all the time so I stopped taking it cold turkey and for about a month I was completely fine. After a month I got the worst withdrawal symptoms, I managed to go 8 days of vomiting, nausea and headaches but then gave in and started taking it again. Once again I snapped and stopped it about a month ago and again withdrawal has started. This time I have vomiting, nausea, constant headaches, frequent urination, increased appetite and just generally feeling unwell. I refuse to start taking it again, I just hate it.

I was just wondering if anyone has been through withdrawal themselves? How long did it last for you?

EDIT - Also I find it really hard to move my eyes, I feel dizzy and bright lights hurt my eyes. Also I find it hard to talk. I just feel so under the weather!
