ive been on olanzapine for some years and ive been in secure units for over 6 years

im thinking of refusing the olanzapine as several people have told me that the consultant
will need "justification" to jab me even if im on section

the main reason i want to be neuroleptic free is cos i want to get drunk and high
when i go on my cto to supported accommodation

can he only jab me if i "deteriorate"

Its a bad idea to get drunk and high on anything when you are on meds, please cooperate with them and take the meds they feel you need :hug1:

Can they help you find something you could enjoy doing after they let you out? :hug1:

Having the reason of "I want to get drunk and high" isnt going to be a good reason for them to let you out, that sort of thing they would use as a reason to keep you in :hug1:

i tell them all the time thats what i want to do but ill be under a CTO and the forensic outreach team
but they cant recall you just for that you have to be unwell

my diagnosis is aspd and eupd the consultant is using the olanzapine as a " prophylactic" cos he thinks i might be violent

in my opinion nobody "needs" neuroleptics all they do is damage people

are you speaking from experience? because ive been told by alot of guys thats olanzapine stops them from feeling drunk and that makes me want to come off olanzapine even more

from experience and from seeing how quickly/easily a friend (who previously was a heavy drinker) got wasted once on olanzapine
