Re: Olanzapine?

So why are they sedating you? Is there another diagnosis? Is the sedation helping anything that you are aware of? Are they maintaining the stimulants?

Quick fixes are often a good idea- to settle down a situation that is worsening out of control.

Re: Olanzapine?

It's just a quick fix from a professional. Otherwise they should have let you talk to the psychiatrist or psychologist.

Re: Olanzapine?

It may be a quick fix-- but why?
If they think you have hypomania (which they might, given their choice of drug) then they may very well have good reason?
You need to understand why this choice was made.

Re: Olanzapine?

It sent me to sleep and I took it at night, they gave it to me for hypomania. I didn't like it in the end and I take a small dose of haloperidol which works really well

Re: Olanzapine?

i dont know what do you mean by "quick fix" but olanzapine is second generation anti-psychotic used in treatment of bipolar disorders,schizophrenia,schizo affective disorder

low doses are used for many other problems but not as first line treatment, it isnt sedative
sedatives are benzodiazepines, it has sedating effects as side effect
thats why they prescribe it for insomnia but at low doses

it depends on how much u take , even 2.5mg is quite strong when compared to other anti-psyhotics at lowest doses
if they give you above 7.5, it means that it isnt "quick fix"
