Many years ago a neurologist prescribed Olanzapine for me for depression (wasnt the reason for my appt). It had never been mentioned by my pdoc. Surprisingly it worked to get me out of a dark place. At some point I stopped taking it as it was a serious weight gainer and started to lose its effectiveness. However, I experienced a serious relapse upon discontinuing a combo of olanzapine/Ritalin/ klonopin. Stupid, I know. I was traveling out of the country and didnt want to worry about having meds to explain. Fast forward, I am now taking 5mg for sleep.

My questions:

Could small dose of 5mg be whats keeping me out of the dark place while d/cing Nardil?

Would 5mg be enough to cause weight gain?

I am sleeping 12 hours a night, could this be the result of 5mg of olanzapine?

Anyone have a withdrawal strategy that worked?

Could olanzapine counter effects of MAOI? My doc says it would help Nardil to work but I dont always trust his opinions.

Thanks for any thoughts.
