Tapering my medication



Am sick to death of being palmed off by GP and pdoc about what i should and shouldn't take so i started to slowly come of my meds,currently from 20mg and now to 3.5mg of olanzapine,tbh i feel ok apart from a recent bereavement hitting me hard.

I will not be a walking Boots chemist anymore!
