As far as I know Tony, it is the highest dosage. I used to have to take 20mg too, but I have now swapped over to Seroquel/Quetiapine because Olanzapine is notorious for weight gain.

How will it make you feel ? Well nobody can really answer that Tony, because everybody reacts differently, but for me I felt drowsy during the day time.
Other than the side effects (weight gain) and drowsiness, I think it's a really good drug and is very effective.

Hope you get on with it x
