if you had to go old, which ap would you suggest?


Recommended Posts

honestly, the only one i've had experience with of any sort is haldol. haldol made me feel surreal and more tired than seroquel, so i stopped taking it after a week.

i don't think that the old meds are necessarily worse, though there is a higher chance of some of the TD issues, especially if you take the drugs for a long time. My pdoc loves the older drugs just like he loves the newer ones. takes all kinds.

I liked Stelazine - I heard it was the drug of choice for back in the day for Viet Nam vets who were suffering from psychotic symptoms. It gave me bad tremors though and I had to take cogentin with it. Mellaril was awful - the only drug I've taken that caused me serious weight gain. The shrink admitted to me that one of the reason he prescribe Mellaril was because he thought I was too thin. I was miserable with the added 30 pounds. What an idiot he was.
