Hi Alan

>I think there is some NHS ruling that says no more than 28 to be prescribed at one time.

Although GPs can prescribe more than 28 if they wish, it is fairly uncommon for patients to be prescribed quantities greater than 28 zopiclone. Most GPs would probably refuse, zopiclone is only licensed for short term treatment in the UK, although some people do take it on a long term basis.

>The zopiclone is only a temporary measure

I thought so..... but the high dose of olanzapine might be equally temporary? You might be able to reduce your dose fairly soon if things are going OK.

>Do you know if there are any drug interactions between Seroquel and Olanzapine?

Such a low dose of Seroquel would almost certainly be safe with Zyprexa. High doses of both drugs would not generally be prescribed together.

By the way, have you ever taken valproate (Epilim, Depakote, Orlept)?
