Customer Question
Hello I just lost...

Hello I just lost my session. I have been prescribed Olanzapine 5 mg, Clonazepam ,5 mg and Zoloft 100mg on Friday. I had been taking the zolot at 200 but the other are replacement drugs. The Olanzpine is supposed to be twice a day and I have taken it once a day and even them would like to cut it in half. The Colnazepam I have taken once a day and that seems perhaps enough. The zoloft is OK. So what do I do Must I take the full dose if it makes me feel like a total zombie? It is too much and I have family members who are sensitive to aspirin. I am also sensitive to medications. Thank you.

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

No allergies that I know. The meds listed...

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No he or she can ask I believe.

Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 8 months ago

who is prescribing these medications for you? your primary care doctor? psychiatrist?

what is your diagnosis? do you have bad anxiety symptoms? depression?

if the clonazepam once a day is enough, that is fine.

if the olanzapine is enough, that is fine.

Thank you! It is a psychiatrist and I was frazzled at the time. Bi polar seems to be the most recent. I am more nervous about not following his instructions than anything. But quite groggy although at least functional and I could call if more information would be helpful. I waited all day to take it. On the east coast.
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 8 months ago

let your doctor know you are doing once a day

if your bipolar symptoms get worse, you may need the olanzapine twice a day

let me know if you have other questions.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
