Derealization happens to me because of Olanzapine and I'm stuck between two problems

I've been taking olanzapine for a very long time, and another antipsychotic called invega (when I only have affective disorder). I'm stuck between hearing voices and having derealization or only hearing voices.

What should I do? Olanzapine clearly causes derealization to me and I feel scared, paranoid. Some relative of mine imposes it on me because she says things would go bad again if I didn't take the pills. There was a time when I was taking only olanzapine and when I stopped taking it I got rid of derealization but then hearing voices started happening so I went back to taking it. My doctor doesn't want to give me another kind of medicine.

Ugh I hear you... I don’t hear voices but was put on a small dose of olanzapine to help sedate my panic but it makes my DR bad!! Unfortunately when I tried to come off, my anxiety was awful. I wish doctors thought more before prescribing meds :( I would talk about cross tapering the antipsychotic... have you tried that? Good luck to you!! Xxx
