Zyprexa Withdrawal Symptoms
Stopped taking Zyprexa 0.625mg two days ago and was wondering how long it would take to notice withdrawal symptoms?
Never: Olanzapine has no true withdrawal symptoms. If it did, you would be at a sufficiently low dose that you wouldn't experience them. But you may experience a return of the symptoms that olanzapine was treating, and this could happen immediately, or any day for a couple of months, unless there is an alternative treatment for those symptoms. ...Read more

Have been taking zyprexa 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?
Well ...: It's hard to predict exactly what symptoms may occur. However, it sounds like you're partnering with your doctor in a very smart way & taking an extremely low dose of Zyprexa. I'd guess that any withdrawal symptoms would be very minimal. If you take your medication at night - you might notice that you aren't as sleepy as you are normally (as Zyprexa can be sedating).

Caffeine withdrawal: I recommend that people who are using excessive caffeine (whether coffee, tea or cola or other soft drinks) cut back by about 25% of the dose every 3-4 days until they get down to 1-2 servings per day, which is generally safe. If you are drinking sugared pepsi, there is also the sugar issue to deal with, so use of diet drinks temporarily may help. If 8 drinks/day, go down 2 drinks every 3-4 days. ...Read more
