Hi there I took zyprexa for 8 years I´m bipolar and started my initial dosage with 20mg per day, you have to lower your dosage bit by bit, then I went down to 10mg for sometime then 5mg and now I sotpped taking it for about 10 months. You can´t just stop taking it from one day to the next, that would be a big mistake and you also need to be supervised by your doc.
What other medications are you on and what is your "mental disorder"?
I hope I have been of some help
