Hi Ed

For the first time in I don't know how long I feel normal. Last night I had the first decent night's kip for years. This after persevering with the 10 mg nocte Olanzapine for two weeks. I don't know whether my present frame of mind is due to the Olanzapine or to the decent night's kip.

Hopefully I can keep the Zopiclone in reserve -all 7 tablets! I don't mind staying on 10 mg Olanzapine so long as the unwanted side effects don't trouble me. So far there has been zero weight gain although I am eating more - mostly biscuits between meals. The other side effect which I am wary of is flat affect, a feeling of over sedation. If that comes along then I will try to reduce to 7.5 mg. However if it continues like today has been then I'm laughing.

...Alan
