I have a call with my psychiatrist in the morning and I'm desperate. I might push for a change of medication. Thanks , Veela , for your encouragement.

I know how you feel. It is so exhausting... But with the right meds days become brighter. I speak out of experience. Have a bad day too tho..

I have been on olanzapine since 1997. I will suggest abilify to the doctor when I see her.

Wow now i can feel you why you so tired of it. I really hope you get better.
