I didn't taper from the 5mg to 2.5mg. I've been on 2.5mg for 28 days. I'm having intrusive and suicidal thoughts. Thanks for any response!
Can I reinstate 5mg of olanzapine if I've been taking lower dose of 2.5mg?

Hi, I know someone who was on the same situation. Did you reinstate? Perhaps we can talk to learn more of your situation?
You say that you did this on your own, without supervision from a health care guidance, I assume. That's a problem with most any prescribed medicine. I'd get advice immediately from a registered pharmacist's (because they are much easier to reach on a weekend) or call your doctor ASAP. Other than that I don't know or haven t investigated this medicine , myself.
With that being said, generally you should follow to the tee directions on the label.
