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

It is possible. It's not just about olanzapine alone, but it may have additive or even synergistic effects combined with others drugs such as Nardil.

> Would 5mg be enough to cause weight gain?

Could be if you are highly sensitive to this adverse effect.

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

I think it is the olanzapine in combination with the Nardil. Are you also taking anything in addition to those 2?

> Anyone have a withdrawal strategy that worked?

I could quit cold turkey without problem, but the prescribing psychiatrist stepped down the dose gradually.

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

Either way is possible.

If you need an antipsychotic in the mix, I would suggest eg. cariprazine, which is activating. If available to you, I might also suggest amisulpride (or the older sulpiride) or flupenthixol (also spelt flupentixol). Lurasidone could work too, but some people get somnolence from it.
