No--I'm not planning to go off of my other meds. I'm pretty clearly bipolar and want to maintain on appropriate medication. What I don't want is to be over medicated, or medicated to the point where the good parts of my psyche/personality/intelligence are compromised. The zyprexa was causing cognitive slowing (I'm a mathematician, that's a very bad thing) and after doing some in depth medical research I had some severe concerns about remaining on it long term. For me, there seems to be a balance between being medicated so that I can function and medicated to the point where I'm no longer myself. The zyprexa, as med #4, seemed to push me over that line.

Once again, good luck.
