The patient has been taking olanzapine 2.5 for last few months along with other antidepressants for anxiety and ocd. Recently we noticed that olanzapine was making me a bit emotionless. Thus my doctor put me on quetiapine 25 mg. Just wanted to know which amount of dosage of quetiapine will be equal to olanzapine 2.5 mg. Just for informative purpose. Thank you!

Both are different molecules. So exactly equal doses not possible.
Olanzapine is really bad in OCD even in low doses so is Quitiapine.
the doses given by the doctor are correct, no need to worry, you can take as instructed. All the best.
