Olanzapine what to expect?
« on: August 25, 2014, 07:44:33 AM »
So I've been with my doctor today and I'm on 20mg of Lexapro but he has prescribed me 2.5mg of Olanzapine also. Is anybody else here on the this? I was given it before as a once off due to a 16 hour panic episode/attack. But he has precribed it for long term use while I'm waiting to see a psychiatrist and for CBT. I have taken mirtazapine for a few days before and it was too sedating even at a tiny dosage. I really want to get better and I'm willing to go through a few weeks of getting used to the medication in order to get my life back on track. I am a hypochondriac with severe anxiety and suffer panic attacks. Also I a recovering addict so Benzo's are out of the question for me.

If I take death into my life, acknowledge it, and face it squarely, I will free myself from the anxiety of death and the pettiness of life - and only then will I be free to become myself.
