 1  Recurrent psychosis Avolition Apathy Anhedonia Depression Suicidal ideation Sexual dysfunction This drug, along with all other neuroleptics should be banned. They are a chemical lobotomy and castration. They are tools of social control. 36 3 months
 1  Drug induced psychosis No emotion at all. Complete lack of motivation to do anything at all. This feels like torture to me and makes me feel suicidal. Insatiable hunger all day long; I've put on 10 kilos. I'm now withdrawing very slowly, hoping the psychosis will not return. I'm now at 3.75mg down from 10mg, but still feel no emotions or motivation. i hope i don't end up here forever. I was put on antipsychotics after I told a psychiatrist I was feeling suicidal after breaking up with my girlfriend. I took it (Risperdal at the time) religiously for 3 years (big mistake), then withdrew from it slowly within a year. 6 months after that I had my first ever psychotic break. I'm sure it is drug induced because I didn't have it before I started on antipsychotics and my reason to go on them wasn't because of psychosis. So be aware that you can become psychotic going off of it, even if the drug wasn't prescribed to you for that reason. M 35 1.5 years

ZYPREXA RELPREVV  (OLANZAPINE PAMOATE):  Olanzapine injection is used to treat a certain mental/mood disorder (schizophrenia). Olanzapine helps you to think more clearly, feel less nervous, and take part in everyday life. It may also help to decrease hallucinations (hearing/seeing things that are not there). Extended-release olanzapine injection is a long-acting psychiatric medication called an atypical antipsychotic. It works by helping to restore the balance of certain natural substances in the brain. Talk to the doctor about the risks and benefits of treatment (especially when used in teenagers). See also Warning/Precautions sections.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
