Olanzapine disaster
Hi to all. I took Olanzapine 10mg for 6 Yrs & suffered a very strange & worrying side effect due to the Drug. After 3 Months of taking it, I literally stopped sleeping any more than 2 hours a night, characterized by no sleepiness prior to sleep onset (just blacked out) & no feelings of fatigue either physically or mentally despite days without sleep. I also had no drug effect from multiple Drugs, such as Alcohol, even after drinking 2 Litres of strong Wine, rather just no respiratory depression (very worrying), virtually no intoxication & no bodily effects such as warming effect, gate change (Cerebellar). I became so worried & distressed by this that I set out to withdraw from all Drugs & Alcohol in the hope that the fore mentioned extremely strange & bafflin...

Oleanz Side Effects
my father takes the following medicine Oleanz RT 10(olanzapline), estopam-10(escitalopam oxalate tablets), cap. preganerve-m(Preagabalin with mecobalamin) he complains of heavy head and lays on bed all day.kindly suggest something to help in releif. ## Has he consulted his doctor? Generally, it's not recommended to try to treat possible side effects with another medication, because they all carry the risk of causing side effects, so you can just end up compounding the problem. The Olanzapine is an antipsychotic and it is well known to cause these types of side effects, so it may be the culprit. He really needs to speak to his doctor, because it may be too high of a dosage for him and he may require a switch to a lower dosage or a different medication. Both the Escitalopram and the P...

galapentin, olanzapine, sertraline
My son is in a drug rehab program and he is random tested. He was told he was positive for benzodiazipine in his urine. Would any of the three medications above indicate those results? He swears he has not taken anything else. ## benzodiazepines are mostly psychotropic and sleep inducing drugs; similar to the drugs you have listed. i am not familiar with Galapentin, however Olazapine & Sertraline have similar characteristics to benzodiazepine type drugs. If he is in a treatment program, it is likely they have put him on some sort of antidepressents to help him get better. Maybe that is why it showed. I would speak with his counselor. ## The Benzodiazepine class of drugs includes medications like Xanax and Ativan. Gabapentin. Olanzapine and Sertraline are not related to this drug cla...

Side Effect Of Valproate
will i still be able to get my wife pregnant ## i take 500mg of valporate sodium 1 nightly and 5mg of olanzapine 1 nightly will i still be able to get my wife pregnant ## Hi, Pete! These medications haven't been known to cause any issues with men and their sperm count, so there shouldn't be any problem. Most problems arise when the woman is taking a medication and trying to conceive, since many of them can affect their hormone levels and ovulation. Good luck! Are there any other questions or concerns?

Olanzapine withdrawalVZ
how to get off Olanzapine drug. What other non addictive medication or nutrients can be taken to ameliorate the side effects of olanzapine withdrawal. ## Hi Elizabeth, Have you ever considered trying medical marijuana as a means of helping you get over much of those withdrawal symptoms? If anything, I think it could at least help you cope mentally and emotionally with it until the other symptoms begin to subside. That is just my theory based on personal experience. But I know everyone reacts and responds different to treatment, so perhaps it would be best to discuss this with your doctor if your state is one that allows the use of cannabis?

White Round Pill 0z5 or oz5 imprinted
Like in the subject, I have a couple of these pills and I can't identify them. I got them in Canada and most databases contain mostly US medications. They are white, round, with 0z5 or oz5 imprinted on one side, and nothing on the other. ## I'm sorry, but I can't find this listed anywhere, either. I do have some Canadian resources, but it isn't turning up in them, either. Have you tried asking a pharmacist? If it is an over the counter product, it may be difficult to identify, since they aren't required to list their imprints. Does anyone else recognize this? ## OLANZAPINE 5MG TAB, I am in Ontario, I take them before bed with a meal

Skipping Oleanz 2.5mg - Side Effects
I am taking Oleanz 2.5 mg for the past one year instead of Olanex 5 mg(taken upto 3 years).Now for the past one month I have changed the frequency of taking the tablet every two days first and then now once in a week. What are the ill effects of NOT TAKING Oleanz 2.5mg every day? Also shall I continue to skip Oleanz 2.5mg ONCE FOR ALL? ## Well, it does contain the active ingredient Olanapine, which is an antipsychotic, so stopping it, or cutting down may cause a return of the symptoms that it was being taken for and they may worsen due to a rebound effect. Learn more Olanzapine details here. Why are you stopping it? Has your doctor given you any advice?
