When can I stop getting shots of Zyprexa Relprevv?

Zyprexa Relprevv (olanzapine) is a long-term treatment for schizophrenia. You may be on it for a long time if it is helping to control your symptoms without undue side effects. However, if it isn't working well for you or causes side effects that are serious or bothersome, you may want to talk to your doctor about discontinuing it. Work with your doctor on other medications that can help control your condition.
