    Desire to Increase my Medication Dosage

    Lately I have been wanting to increase my daily dose of Zyprexa Zydis. I have been on 30 mg per day of this drug since August 2017. So it is probably settled into my system now. That is why I think increasing it to 40 mg per day would be beneficial for me now.

    Hi aveas,

    You may need to increase your medication. If you feel that way, give your doctor a call. He/she will decide if the dosage of your medication needs to increase.

    Please dont increase it without speaking to your doctor first. This medication is affected by your weight and other things; it is always smart to speak to your prescribing doctor before you do any medication changes.

    I left a message with my Doctor. I said that I wanted to increase my Zyprexa Zydis to either 35 mg / day or to 40 mg / day. Thanks for the input, Chainsoflove and MSNik.
