> Yes Scott, you are right, I dont know how much more of this I can take. Im also on 2.5mg of olanzapine and I forgot to take it last night, and today the suicidal feelings are even stronger.

There are a couple of drugs that work to reduce suicidal ideation. Olanzapine (Zyprexa) is one of them. Why haven't you tried to go to 5.0 mg/day or 10 mg/day of olanzapine? Lithium, clozapine, and ketamine are others that come to mind.

For me, 300 mg/day of lamotrigine is the minimum effective dosage. What side effects do you experience when you increase the dosage beyond 200 mg/day? How long did you spend at the highest one dosage?

> Can that happen just by missing 1 dose of olanzapine?

It is conceivable, especially if you are barely responding to it. On the other hand, the half-life of olanzapine is 33 hours.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
