My friend is taking this med and has not been herself since she has started taking it. Her anxiety is and has been off of the wall and she has not been able to organize a thought. This was NOT happening before she was introduced to it. She was anxious when she was first hospitalized but now her anxiety is intensified. I would like to know what you have experienced aside from weight gain with this medication.
I'm currently taking Olanzapine at 10mg. I also take Lexapro at 20mg.
Since being on Olanzapine at 10mg (she bumped me up after being a month on 5mg and doing fine), my anxiety increased from occassional anxiety to extreme paranoia and anxiety.
When I asked my psychiatrist about it, she dismissed my concern and made me feel like it must just be something going on on my end. I know this isn't true.
The anxiety is debilitating right now. I'm going to start weening myself off of it tonight.
