    I was on 15mg zyprexa(olanzapine) and 60mg prozac(fluxotine). I was told by my psychiatrist to come off the zyprexa, that was 3months ago, I've started to loose weight now due to being off it :biggrin:
    I was told that I could reduce my prozac around May next year, but its caused my sex drive to basically be non existent, so I decided to reduce it by 20mg, and my god has my sex drive picked back up! Its also made me feel 'less zombiefied' if that makes sense...
    So feeling a bit more feminine again, which is nice, just hope it keeps up.
