Savannah Posted September 21, 2012 Share Posted September 21, 2012 My pdoc wants to take me off of Prolixin because of concerns over developing TD. He wants to replace it with Tegretol. I know this is an old drug, but I dont know anything about it.I have had some psychosis that broke through even 5mg of Prolixin. Anyone who has been on it, can you let me know how sedating it is? My pdoc says if you take it alone it isnt sedating, but in combination with other drugs it is. He said I would probably go off my trazadone and rozerem and lower my seroquel. He also said that tegretol makes other drugs less efficient and some (Lamictal) would have to be increase. I just dont want to go through another titration of a sedating me. On my appt yesterday we agreed I could stay on Prolixin a while longer but I have vacation in 2 weeks and am thinking of making the change then. Savannah, BP1 Prolixin 5mg, Lamictal 400mg, Seroquel 400mg, Geodon 160mg, Trazadone 200mg, Rozerem 8mg Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
