Withdrawal effects from Zyprexa, how to help them

I have tried to come off Zyprexa but after a few days I start getting servere stomach cramps, being sick and diararaha. My Doc has said to take 1/2 a pill each night instead of one and do that for a week and then come off them. I have tried 3 times to come of them due to the weight gain.

Has anyone ese had these withdrawals and how did they deal with it.

I just do not recall any side effects the wife had due to coming off this med.
Maybe it's just my memory going?
God Bless

Re: Withdrawal effects from Zyprexa, how to help them


Im also having withdrawal problems, not with Zyprexa but with Syroquel (which is supposed to have no problems with quitting). Been trying to work off of it slowly but once I get under 100mg I get very nauseous and very anxious/nervous. Its so bad I just upped my dose so I could feel better....not sure what I can do.
