High doses of antipsychotics can indeed numb your senses. 15mg of Zyprexa is way too much, unless you are suffering from severe psychosis and need to have your senses dulled.

Successful doses of Risperdal are in the .25 to 1 mg range. Were your doses that small? Successful doses of Zyprexa are in the 2.5mg to 5mg range. 15 is way too much. These things work totally different at super low doses than they do at high doses. It's almost like they are two different drugs in one, total opposites, depending on the dose size. I love 5mg Zyprexa. I know for sure if I took 15mg it would be lousy.

More is not always better. With APs, less is better. That is, unless a true psychotic episode is being treated.
