Have been taking zyprexa (olanzapine) for about two months, am now down to 0.62mg, doctor said I can stop anytime, if I stop now would I have withdrawal symptoms?

I take Lexilium(bromazepam) when I have anxiety. One pill 3mg maybe every third day for 4 months. Can I have withdrawal if I stop? How should i stop?

Try once a week for awhile and watch for reactions - a common one is increased anxiety. Don't worry, just move slowly toward one/month, then off if you feel okay. This is an issue w/ Rx(s) best considered up front. Best! ...Read more
