> i've moved down to 10mg, i was on 20, and at one time during a event i was taking 30mg. I notice im more talkative, and less free cloud ride that olanzapine sedation would give. I thought all these years why im talking so much, i thought i was impaired, it was the olanzapine that blunted some social motivation. Now that's it lowered im realizing more activity, added diazepam for anxiety, been on it for about 7 months. they say diazepam is long acting but in actual terms it only lasts 6-7 hours, then it fades but the metabolites are still there. It just relieves anxiety in general way, general calm, ativan was more for severe anxiety like events, alprazolam worked fast and eliminate panic attacks, it had antidepressant feeling, because it hits D2 receptors. But ... out of all the benzos i've been on, diazepam is the most general benzo there is, just a general calm, relief of anxiety and that's about it... 10mg makes me apathetic, and i have drink coffee to get out of a valium slump. You know people, say diazepam is drug of recreational, it really isn't, xanax and ativan have more recreational properties, it's like librium, but a bit a bit more enforcing

I too am coming off of olanzapine. It was added when Nardil was causing a lot of insomnia. Im stopping because Im sleeping too much, and Im afraid its interfering with Nardil. The only withdrawal s/e I notice is waking during the night. I still take melatonin and that works for sleep.

Good luck with your taper!
