Olanzipine withdrawal

Hi everyone,

I've recently switched from olanzipine to geodon and for a month now I've been feeling very depressed and a bit suicidal. Just wondering is it because of coming of the olanzipine. How long do withdrawal symptoms last? Has anyone else had the same problem coming off olanzipine? Thanks

I know how the doctors wean off meds for another and yes you can withdraw from this but the Geodon should cover any kind of withdrawals after the initial stoppage k?

Ok thanks, the geodon doesn't seem to be covering the olanzipine withdrawal. Maybe in a few weeks it will pass
