DOSE:
7.5 mg oral Pharms - Olanzapine (pill / tablet)

BODY WEIGHT: 215 lb


Using the pill for the past two years I have noticed that it helps me get to sleep. I also notice that I have dreams toward the end of my sleep which sometimes makes it difficult to wake up. These effects did not happen until the third week or so of once a day administration of the medicine. The effect goes away after about two days of no pill. And of course, I should also mention that I have acquired an occationational twitch if I try to speak quickly, and unconcertedly. This twitch has not surfaced in the past months, but I am sure that they are not gone for good. I hope this goes away when I stop the therapy. I should also mention I gained about 45 pounds when on the pill.
