I could go no lower than 5 mg, by now the drug was producing the symptoms it was primarily designed to treat, upon withdrawal
. Bad sleep, screwed up dreams, and exotic phobias. So I stuck it out at 5mg's, with not much hope in sight. The avg. dose of zyprexa is 20mg's.
I learned of seroquel, designed to do almost exactly the same thing, but not in the same family at all, just the same class...atypical antipsychotics. Seroquel is cheaper, which sounded good.
