jarn Posted August 12, 2010 Share Posted August 12, 2010 So I've been having some issues lately - doing pretty good this week but since mid-June - eeeeh. My bf would like me to consider adding in another antipsychotic. I am hopefully of one that is more weight-neutral? Perhaps I could try that at a higher dose and stay on a low dose of Seroquel (I've discontinued Seroquel twice and because of discontinuation symptoms I'd prefer not to go off of it). He just thinks I might need something more. Ziprasidone and Invega are out. But extension, so is Risperidal. Saphris and Fanapt are not available in Canada as far as I know. I do NOT want to take Zyprexa because of weight issues. I know the Zydis is supposed to have less problems but I'm still not sure I'm comfortable with it. Abilify I don't find particularly appealing. My bf was wondering about the typical antipyschotics or Clozapine. All I know is that the typicals will = drooling + EPS that might not go away. And Clozapine will = drooling, possible effing up of white blood cells, and some serious weight gain. My other concern is staying stable enough to train (triathlons) and be able to hike and do backcountry trips (I lead groups for an outdoor club I volunteer for). Basically, I need to be able to be quite active on the med. I don't even know if my doctor will be receptive to 2 AP's. I suspect it is not his favourite thing. I don't even know if I want to CHANGE, again. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
