Hi,I have been taking the maximum dosage of olanzapine for over a month and it has literally given me my life back. It has been a game changer in every way. Hope you find it the same way.

Hi, Rhino187,

May I ask; what sort of dose of Olanzapine, are you taking? I'm interested to know.

Thanks, I myself take Abilify.

Hi Rhino187,

Thanks for informing me, much appreciated. Howeve,r I had to come off, Onlanzapine, for various reasons. I now take Abiilfy, and I am retrialing 20ml, down from 25ml.


I'm fine, no heard voices, no intrusive thoughts, and no delusions slightly, and no paranoia.


How the paranoia will be, if and when I amout shopping, either today or tomorrow, will remain to be seen.


Have a good day,


Best regards.

It's ironic in itself that I was prescribed olanzapine back in 1998 when it first hit the shelves. I found it difficult to keep taking because of the sedation. Here I find myself in 2021 back on it with minimal side effects.

Thanks for advising me. I also had very difficult side effects of sedation, it would have me asleep jokingly on a se rious note, all day long. Abilify is much much better for me, more alert,and more awake.
