I am on Olanzipine(Zyprexia)5mg in the evening and I started having blurred vision.
I would like to tapper it to 2.5 in the evening and see if the blurring foes away.
What are the side effects in doing such thing?
When I tapered my medication too quickly (which I only did in the past a few times) I did experience some withdrawal symptoms but equally importantly the return of what it was treating. The best thing to do is discuss it with your psychiatrist and see if they believe the idea is workable and if they do they could give you a specific titration schedule. Its important to inform them about the side effect you are experiencing though or any other new side effects you start to experience with any medication you are taking so they could be aware of it and follow up.
