It is not a good idea to stop Zyprexa without seeking you doctors advice.
Usually, relapses happen when people stop taking their medication, or when they only take it sometimes. Some people stop taking the medication because they feel better or they may feel they don't need it anymore. But no one should stop taking an antipsychotic medication without talking to his or her doctor. When a doctor says it is okay to stop taking a medication, it should be gradually tapered off, never stopped suddenly.

You feel ok because you are taking it. When you stop taking it you will go back to the way you were before you started taking it. This should never be done without discussing it with your doctor.

i mean, i cant believe you feel good on Zyprexa:):):) are you sure you were mentally ill in the first place? Huhh. Yeh... but their right, you have to be monitored nd have a support line, nd replace it with something(doesnt have to be pharmaceutical)(only in my opinion), nd go down super slow... and you have to prepare yourself that if you start losing control, your goin to go right back up on the previous dose of zyprexa till your comfortable enough to do it again.
