What about trying things that might make you better? Is the glass half-empty or half-full?

Given your complaints about adverse effects, I think you should definitely try APs that are less likely to cause these exact symptoms. Now, Zyprexa is a very effective AP, but Seroquel is not, and is one of the absolute most potent anti-histamines (indeed, my psychiatrist has prescribed me generic Seroquel as needed for sleep).

So, given your current regimen, and your preferences, I would start with a cross-titration of Seroquel and tiapride. If you wish to err on the side of caution, you can even leave the Seroquel as it is, for a start.

In the longer term, I think you should try to determine the minimum adequate dose of APs. I am of the opinion that if you over-treat psychosis you may inhibit psychological self-healing, because you are in effect tricking your brain and psyche that there is no need for healing.

In case you're wondering, I am practising what I preach. The only obstacle is my psychiatrist, who seems to believe, with no experimentation, that I need more APs than I do. I have no symptoms of psychosis at all, which means I am probably being over-treated.
